Letter on Lloyd George (S703ad: 1913)

Editor Charles H. Smith's Note: A private letter to an unnamed individual that was made part of a regular editorial feature called 'Out and About,' this one appearing on page 2 of The Labour Leader issue of 11 September 1913. Precipitated by comments on views presented at a "series of Socialist meetings in Bournemouth." To link directly to this page, connect with: http://people.wku.edu/charles.smith/wallace/S703AD.htm

…Mr. Russel Wallace, our correspondent says, replied to his friend in this strain:

     I not only think, but firmly believe, that Lloyd George is working for the good of the people in all ways open to him. The wonder is that he can persuade Asquith or the Cabinet to let him go so far as he does. No doubt he is obliged to do things he does not think the best, absolutely, but the best that are practicable. He does not prefer to be a Socialist, and he is not infallible, but he does the best he can under the conditions in which he finds himself.
