Wily politician: the UK Prime Minister in 1921, David Lloyd George

In the early hours of December 6, 1921, the Anglo-Irish Treaty was signed in London. It was to define politics in Ireland throughout most of the 20th century until it was superceded by the Good Friday Agreement of 1998.

This was a seminal political event in the relationship between Ireland and Britain. It determined the nature and future shape of politics on this island, north and south.
