100 years ago: The new Prime Minister

02 June 2023

June 1st, 1923.

MR STANLEY BALDWIN’s danger is that of the man of whom all speak well. His acceptance as the leader of his party, his welcome by the House of Commons as Prime Minister, were the occasion of speeches which were not conventional compliments but the expression of a real confidence and of personal esteem. Comparatively short though his political career has been, it has been long enough to show that he possesses qualities of character which the country has always esteemed above brilliant adventurousness. It is with men of character that he is surrounded in his Cabinet. Honest men are likely to produce good measures and to ingeminate peace; and we believe that both the House and the country are anxious that Mr Baldwin’s Government shall have its chance, unhindered in its great tasks by merely factious opposition.
