Sir Lewis Namier’s classic study The Structure of Politics at the Accession of George III(1929) painted a devastating portrait of the British ruling class on the eve of the American Revolution. Sir Lewis sought to demonstrate how idealism, party division and disinterested public service had no relevance at the time. Public men sought office as a means of enriching themselves and rewarding their relations, clients and dependants. A change of government, such as the one brought about by the death of George II, did not merely mean a change of ministers. It brought about a wholesale transfer of public offices. Politicians sought power in order to pillage the state machine. For example the post of Paymaster-General, to be occupied with some distinction two hundred and forty years later by the Labour politician and businessman Geoffrey Robinson, was the foundation of at least one immense fortune.
