When Lloyd George circulated his Fontainebleau memorandum of 25 March after a weekend closeted with several of his advisers, American leaders could support warmly the Prime Minister's reassertion of the liberal themes of self-determination, moderation, and justice which were portrayed as essential for a durable peace, and necessary also to prevent the spread of bolshevism. e. 45 Lloyd George made his tactics clear to Cecil on 26 March 40 Ideology, Diplomacy, and International Organisation when he instructed the latter to withhold British support from any mention or protection of the Monroe Doctrine in the amendments currently being made to the draft Covenant.
In Britain, the Lloyd George government was also troubled by the sins of Versailles, but less sanguine that these could be redeemed or remedied by the League of Nations. Indeed, Lloyd George W Egerton 41 George and the British political, official and military elite looked upon the incipient League of Nations as an alien, fundamentally flawed, and problematic institution.
