Here are my posts which have an historical theme. You will notice the emphasis on 19th century British political history in particular, a period which I studied for my history PhD.

As Winston Churchill said, explaining the practical application of history to forecasting, “The longer you can look back, the further you can look forward”.

Plus, history is just such fun, with a wealth of amazing stories, fascinating details and important lessons for the present.


David Lloyd George on YouTube

Here are some of the former Liberal Prime Minister’s appearances courtesy of YouTube:

Lloyd George visits Chequers – a silent movie, like two of the others (and therefore perfect for those who, shock horror, browse the internet whilst at work)

David Lloyd George gives a powerful speech about economic recovery

Lloyd George quits as PM

Lloyd George visits Hitler – perhaps his least finest hour, recorded in colour

If you don’t know much about Lloyd George, the Liberal Democrat History Group’s website has a biography of Lloyd George.
