Insult archive: Lloyd George

A municipal drainpipe

He saw foreign policy through the wrong end of a municipal drainpipe.

A trail of slime

“The Rt Hon and learned gentleman has twice crossed the floor of this House, each time leaving behind a trail of slime.” Lloyd George’s withering attach on wavering Liberal politician Sir John Simon. No-one likes a turncoat, not least in party politics.

The scent on a lady’s handkerchief

His impact on history would be no more than the whiff of scent on a lady’s handkerchief. Lloyd George insults Balfour.

He couldn’t see a belt

He couldn’t see a belt without hitting below it. Lady Asquith doesn’t rate Lloyd George.

Like mercury

With a fork.

Sat on the fence

He has sat so long on the fence that the iron has entered his soul.

A cushion

He always wore the impress of the last man who had sat on him.

Oh if I could piss..

Oh if I could piss the way he speaks. Clemenceau on Lloyd George.
