Last night I told Walter Roch we would go home by bus instead of taxi because it was more interesting.
So that we were rewarded for our bus ride.

Although he remained on the back benches, he was a prominent member of the Liberal governments, and in 1917 was chosen a member of the Royal Commission on the Dardanelles Campaign . He was mentioned as a possible future Prime Minister, but he chose to support Asquith rather than Lloyd George , a decision which put an end to his political career.
