  • Together, and predictably, David Lloyd George and Winston Churchill used the Budget of 1909 to destroy the legislative power of the House of the Lords, the last instrument of power of the landed aristocrats who had ruled Britain for so long. Arnold Bennett's hypothesis, that the continuing prestige of the House of Lords would attract even the most disdainful members of the House or Commons when they were defeated by advancing age, is tested by the examples of Lloyd George and Churchill.
