Lloyd George - the great outsider

LSE public lecture

David Lloyd George became the authentic radical of British politics in part because of intellectual conviction, but, more significantly, because his birth and upbringing had made him contemptuous of the establishment and its values. He did not so much break the rules of conventional society and politics as refuse to acknowledge their existence. He remained an "outsider" to the end.

This event celebrates the publication of Lord Hattersley's new book David Lloyd George: The Great Outsider.

Roy Hattersley is a writer and historian and was a Member of Parliament from 1964 to 1997 serving as deputy leader of the Labour Party from 1982 to 1992. He has been a columnist in The Guardian, The Daily Mail, Punch, The Spectator and The Daily Express and has written twenty one other books, including In Search of England, Who Goes Home? and A Yorkshire Boyhood, The Edwardians and Borrowed Time: The Story of England Between the Wars.
