'All the Winners' - And the Losers!
No fewer than five once or future prime ministers on show at the momentous 1923 election.
No fewer than five once or future prime ministers are among the stars of this 1923 election round-up. A momentous election failed to furnish Stanley Baldwin's Conservatives with a working majority, allowing Ramsey MacDonald to form the very first Labour government with support from Herbert Asquith's Liberals. Some notable female victors and election-themed student highjinks complete the newsreel.
William Lloyd-George and Winston Churchill - one of this election's losers - also appear, and as a bonus there's a close relative of a sixth PM in the shape of Austen Chamberlain, half-brother of Neville.
