From ‘The military situation’, The Spectator, 29 July 1916: We have a new Secretary for War. Mr Lloyd George, as we all know, is a man of great personal power, with the faculty of stimulating and inspiring, and securing that what he desires shall be accomplished. With him good is not enough. He knows that more and better things can always be done, and he has a voice and a will to compel others to share his opinions. His mind is receptive to new ideas. He never stands still.
