    I understand this reference. Doing one of the great heroes of literature as a stub article (wonder which resident of Longbourne described him as “diffident” in their diaries) is inspired.

    Yeah, the Truss and Sunak (and May) ones were harder because unlike a lot of the earlier PMs they don’t really have hinterlands to speak of. Truss’s post-premiership has revealed her comfort zone to be that of a reactionary talking head, but I was genuinely struggling to think of what Sunak...

    It’s canon. The Johnson thing was based on a couple of asides I’ve seen about how Max Hastings refused to make Johnson a war reporter - I think you and @AH Layard are right in that he was probably trying to ape Churchill - and then remembering what a lousy journo he actually was OTL, how the...

    It’s striking how so many contemporary accounts of Blair compare him to an ageing rock star, and not in a complimentary sense. Nearly made him a rockstar through apparently the couldn’t sing very well. I think if he hadn’t gone into politics (or just never made it to the top) his magpie...

    It’s based on a series of wikiboxes Gorrister did on the other place on the exact same theme - I think the hinterlands of various UK PMs make it a different dynamic. On your idea, it sounds very similar to @Roberto El Rey’s excellent TLIAD.
