Today being the 200th Annivesary of William Ewart Gladstone's birth here is a series of articles I wrote back in 2002 for H2G2:
Part one looking at his early life and election campaigns.
Part two looking at this time in Government both a Chancellor and Prime Minister.
Part three wrapping up a number of subjects, his relationship with the Queen, his speeches and campaigns, he personal life, writtings and reforms.
Looking at these again I may well have to do a little rewrite on these or a few more in depth articles on certain aspects.
The picture is of Mr and Mrs Gladstone at Glencorse Station during the Midlothian campaign. At that time a lot of what is now West Lothian was also part of the constituency that Gladstone was fighting.
