Lloyd George was crooked. He was also manipulated by various crooks. See The Mask Of Merlin for more and better details. Basil Zaharoff, a Greek was one villain and Merchant of Death. Then there was Trebitsch-Lincoln, a Jew was another. The Lloyd George Honours Scandal made life more interesting. Lloyd George brought us the First World War.
Lloyd George Negotiated With Adolf
On 22nd September 22, 1933, Lloyd George declared in a speech at Barmouth: “If the Powers succeed in overthrowing Nazism in Germany, what would follow? Not a Conservative, Socialist or Liberal regime, but extreme Communism. Surely that could not be their objective. A Communist Germany would be infinitely more formidable than a Communist Russia.”
In September 1936 Lloyd George visited Adolf Hitler in an attempt to persuade him not to stop taking military action in Europe. After his arrival back in Britain he wrote in the Daily Express: "I have now seen the famous German leader and also something of the great change he has effected. Whatever one may think of his methods - and they are certainly not those of a Parliamentary country - there can be no doubt that he has achieved a marvellous transformation in the spirit of the people, in their attitude towards each other, and in their social and economic outlook. One man has accomplished this miracle. He is a born leader of men. A magnetic dynamic personality with a single-minded purpose, a resolute will, and a dauntless heart."
Although Lloyd George agreed that Germany had been badly treated after the First World War [ He helped do them down with the Versailles Treaty - Editor ], he was opposed to the British government's policy of appeasement.
This comes from a left wing source which may very well be factual.
Basil was the original Merchant of Death and seriously rich as a result. Little was known of him; much was suspected but not proven. When a man is that important he will get away with things. His hold on Lloyd George is mentioned in Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution and in THE MASK OF MERLIN A CRITICAL BIOGRAPHY OF DAVID LLOYD GEORGE
An interesting man. He makes one think that democracy is little more than a word.
Contract With Jewry
Explains inter alia how Lloyd George was forced to do their will.
Trebitsch-Lincoln ex Wiki
Ignatius Timothy Trebitsch-Lincoln (Hungarian: Trebitsch-Lincoln Ignác, German: Ignaz Thimoteus Trebitzsch; 4 April, 1879 - 4 October, 1943) a Hungarian Jewish adventurer who spent parts of his life as a Protestant missionary, Anglican priest, British Member of Parliament for Darlington, German right-wing politician and spy, and Buddhist abbot in China.
Versatile is the word for him, a fast talking Jew and master manipulator.
Lloyd George Honours Scandal
However as we shall see, such opinions did not prevent Lloyd George from later profiting from the sale of such titles. (Any more than they prevented him from eventually accepting his own hereditary peerage as the Earl Lloyd George of Dwyfor.).........
It might well be argued that the real issue with Lloyd George's grand sale of honours was that there was no quality control exercised over the applicants, as the only criterion that appeared to matter was the ability to pay. Indeed Gregory seems to have specifically targeted wealthy but unscrupulous individuals who wished to buy themselves a little respectability.
Crooked is the word that springs to mind.
