Dear Dave:

Taking over for his dead younger brother Henry as Prime Minister from The House Of Lords cannot have been an easy task for The Right Honourable The Viscount His Grace The Duke The Lord The Marquess Baron Baronet Earl Thomas Pelham-Holles. Nevertheless Tommy acted "brilliantly" in the upper crust manner when handed this unexpected job & is teaching the pages about war stratagems & how crazy & unpredictable certain attacks might be. A very similar situation to the United Kingdom Islamic bombing incidents in today's modern era (& worked upon by the hiding farce that is current PM Theresa May.)

"War could only happen now if Frederick the Great unilaterally attacked Austria. Which given the clear disparity in numbers, he would be a "madman" to do so."

IVth Prime Minister,

    1. Thought of as less talented than his younger brother Hank who became PM 1st, Tommy actually had a far more successful political career. quite a bit of it after Hank's death.
