    1929 book increase in the majority of a Government has happened on only two other occasions since the War: inas you could see, that was an increase from ; and 1929 book later, inunder Margaret Thatcher. Having exhausted their last opportunity to make a political comeback, the Liberals looked towards the future dejectedly. This lecture is the second in a series of six on significant post-War elections and it is onwhich I think is a hugely significant Election. They trooped through the division lobbies in favour of measures they had no part in drawing up, in the interests of a party that was openly contemptuous of them and was increasingly organising against them in their constituencies. The purpose of the government was to show that Labour could govern, and the purpose of the October election was to destroy the Liberal Party, and in this it was a success. But there were swings to Labour in Glasgow and in South-East Lancashire, where unemployment was higher than the national average.

    They will publish manifestoes - 1929 book of what they plan to do if they are voted into power - so people can decide if they want to vote for them. The sooner this useless and cruel government is dispatched, the better. However, for the Liberal Party, the election represented something of an indian summer; their campaign boasting all the essential ingredients for success that had been lacking in previous contests. So, the apparent trend in the campaign was reversed in the result.

    There was one episode in the campaign which might help explain the transformation. 1929 book the government resigned, MacDonald was encouraged by King George V to form an all-party National Government to deal with the immediate crisis. Only one in five of Labour supporters wanted more and they were mainly middle class Labour supporters. This complaint reveals an ignorance of how parliamentary politics and the constitution works. Because Labour would not discuss coalition, it would be a minority government.

Post content The general election The election of May took General Election against a backdrop of economic depression, as the Conservative government struggled to stem a growing tide of unemployment in the aftermath of the First World War.

The government in power before the election gets the first chance at doing this. Yet although they polled 5, votes, the election result 1929 book a bitter disappointment for the Liberals, 1929 book won just 59 seats, only 16 more than they had taken in The Parliament, unless some sort of National Liberal grouping of the sort favoured by Nick Boles is created, would be unique in Conservative-Liberal coalition history in General Election producing General Election sort of realignment of politicians and voting blocs of lasting benefit to the Conservatives.

Those facts are inescapable. The Tories were the largest single party in terms of seats seats, compared to for Labour and Liberals and also in votes, with 38 per cent of the votes cast compared to about 30 per cent each for Labour and the Liberals.

His style is, by modern standards, rather patronising and the film is a bit amateurish, but I think he makes the point. Carl Court After the General Election, Theresa May's Conservative Party made a deal with the Democratic Unionist Party so they'd have enough support in Parliament The second one - if the party that won the most MPs, but without getting an overall majority, does not want to join with another party like this, they can try to rule as a minority government.

The image of the Labour Party was becoming obsolete. Now, the criticism of the Conservatives, made by many economists, I think probably the majority of the economists, and certainly by the Labour Party, was that the British economic growth record was poor by comparison with France, Germany and Japan.

The ambitious programme contrasted sharply with the Conservatives' slogan of 'Safety First', which firmly promoted the continuation of economic orthodoxy and produced no original plans to tackle the escalating economic crisis.

The result: almost twice as many homes built last year as under Labour inand a million houses built under the Tories to date. The schemes for national development were supported by key economists and theorists such as John Maynard Keynes and Seebohm Rowntree and detailed explicit plans for house building, road construction and the extension of the telephone system, all of which would stimulate the economy by providing jobs for the unemployed.

But why call the election in the first place? The end of the Labour government of was, like its predecessor, essentially suicide rather than murder.

The socialists are for controls and austerity, but the Conservative policy is incentive and expansion. For several weeks, they will be knocking on doors, debating with rivals and delivering General Election to try to convince adults across the UK to vote 1929 book them.

It stood as the last time when a "third party" non-Labour or Conservative polled more than one-fifth of the popular vote untilthe next election thus ushering in five decades in which two-party politics dominated. But there were swings to Labour in Glasgow and in South-East Lancashire, where unemployment was higher than the national average.

Indeed, Labour won seats in the textile areas of Lancashire and in Glasgow, against this general swing. It stands as the fifth of seven instances under the secret ballotand the first of three under universal suffragein which a party has lost on the popular vote but won the highest number known as "a plurality" of seats versus all other parties — others are, JanuaryDecemberand February How is a general election won?
