THE CABINET

though an alternative government could have been found in the actual House of Commons, and this provides a strong precedent. Objection was not taken to his decision, although it is impossible to say whether criticism would not later have been heard had Mr. MacDonald's appeal to the country proved successful. To refuse a dissolution can in any case only be successful if an alternative ministry is to be found without it, and even then, although the incoming Prime Minister would by implication take responsibility for the King's refusal, the fact that the King had taken a personal decision of great political moment could hardly be obscured except with the connivance of the Prime Minister to whom he gave the refusal.
Having once been chosen, the Prime Minister ceases in gradually increasing measure to be the mere creature of his creators. As leader of the party in the country, and still more as the chief member of the Government and the greatest dispenser of patronage in public life, he takes on a new stature. Power makes him interesting. His personality is "put across" to the public by the Press, the newsreel, the radio, the cartoonist. His features and voice and peculiarities are made familiar to everyone in the country. He attains a public personality which, often enough, his friends would find a great difficulty in recognising as his own. He is converted into something of a symbol and a figurehead. Around him centres a certain amount of hero-worship. Criticism by his own followers is regarded as disloyalty. He has grown not only into a leader but into the chief buttress of party unity, and in time of emergency of national unity. This public personality is one of the chief assets of his party at a general election. The more the ordinary citizen can be taught to love its peculiarities, to believe in its honesty, or to admire
