The question is whether he was a murderer. Someone was last seen going into a house with his electoral agent. No body was ever found.

That is about 94% less than Snowflake Cleggover. dearieme December 8, 2016 at 2:03 pm The first time I ever heard of Lloyd George, it was in song. dearieme December 8, 2016 at 2:06 pm For those who’ve never heard it: civil servant to LG, who was about to go to the peace conference in Paris – “Will Mrs Lloyd George be accompanying you, PM?” Answer: “Who would take a sandwich to a banquet?” Rob December 8, 2016 at 2:53 pm The article would read more honestly as “Hey!
