Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman resigns as Liberal Prime Minister

After signing his resignation letter to King Edward VII, Campbell-Bannerman said to his private secretary Vaughan Nash, ‘That’s the last kick my dear fellow, I don’t mind. I’ve been Prime Minister for longer than I deserve’. Too ill to leave Downing Street, Campbell-Bannerman remained there and died nineteen days later, the only Prime Minister to die at No.10.
