glad you enjoyed it; I never checked the scores, but as I'm sure everyone worked out it was Disraeli.

Very interesting puzzle with noteworthy facts.

I figured out Disraeli during the second clue. Fortunately the reference to "Albert" helped get the historical time line down.

Well written!

Well, no; the five puzzles I got were perhaps not the most amenable to a positive ID. However, given my mere smattering of knowledge about British political history, I surely can't hold that against the author.

Initially I thought it was Robert Peel. Went down the rabbit hole after that.

Enjoyed your WP a lot Barry, thanks! I had a hunch your politician was Disraeli even before I played the WP! Nice assortment of facts, intelligent and well-written, i.e. enjoyed reading the phrases once I had deciphered them.

Knowing Barry a bit, I figured it would be Disraeli or Thatcher, and my first phrase cleared it up. I've been fascinated by Disraeli since I saw Ian McShane (Lovejoy, Deadwood) play him in a PBS/BBC miniseries decades ago; I've even read the novels.

Thanks for an excellent puzzle, Barry.
