Alfred Charles William Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Northcliffe (1865 - 1922) spent some time in the U.S. during the Twenties and drew some noteworthy conclusions regarding American Prohibitio:
"While in our midst he made up his mind about Prohibition. In his opinion it is a failure... His reasons seem to be that he saw plenty of liquor everywhere he was entertained; that Prohibition encourages hypocrisy in the vision of the law, and that he did not like it anyhow... But America has taken it's stand and will stick to it."
