The Great Northern Robber Baron, as I see it - lucky to have survived association with Baldwin and the worst of the Conservatives and mostly 'cause he saw lots of pounds Sterling in the offing as a hawk, so wasn't labeled "unready for war", or an "appeaser" - one wonders what might have been if Bonar Law had lived. The prototype for other press barons of Fleet Street, most of whom were and are despicable.
