“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”― Benjamin Disraeli.
According to Julia Baird (Victoria; The Queen 2016: p375) “Benjamin Disraeli was an unlikely prime minister. He dressed like a dandy in lurid velvet suits, with rings over his gloves and a curl in the middle of his forehead”.William Kuhn (The Politics of Pleasure: A Portrait of Benjamin Disrael, 2007) goes further, saying Disraeli was a friend of Oscar Wilde and was gay too.
Baird also says that “Disraeli remains Britian’s only prime minister of Jewish descent”. I am sure Miles Mathis, would says most prime ministers were secretly Jewish.
And “In between his two stints as prime minister, he wrote a bestselling novel, Lothair- his sixteenth” He would eventually write 18 novels!!
