  • The personal causes, and political consequences, of addiction to alcohol by H. H. Asquith are explored. The most important personal cause was his unhappy second marriage, to Margot Tennant. The most important political consequences were to the hopes of British temperance advocates, to effective British policymaking in the Great War, and to Asquith's own political career.
