Sample text

Such men as Lord Loreburn, the Lord Chancellor, Morley, Herbert Gladstone, Bryce and Ripon all belonged to the Gladstonian tradition. In addition, Lord Crewe as Lord President of the Council, Lord Tweedmouth as First Lord of the Admiralty and Lord Elgin as Colonial Secretary were all moderates unlikely to rume the placid waters of Whitehall. It was hardly surprising, armed with such a massive majority and with a Cabinet of undoubted strength, that Radicals had high hopes of reforms to come. The early days of the new government lent strength to these Radical hopes.

By May 1902, however, the Treaty ofVereeniging ended the war. At home the tide of public opinion began to swing more noticeably against the government. Liberal criticism of the government's handling of the conflict (Campbell-Bannerman's 'methods of barbarism' had proved a telling phrase) became a viable political platform, and the Liberals were able to capitalise on the criticisms put forward by the Commission of Inquiry into the war. Meanwhile, other events were to aid the reviving fortunes of the Liberal Party.

Prior to the campaign of 1892, the political scene was temporarily galvanised as the news of the Parnell divorce hit Britain. Massive Nonconformist pressure from both within the Liberal Party and outside culminated in Gladstone's repudiation of Parnell. Despite the crisis blow of the O'Shea divorce the Liberal Party remained confident, ahd was eager for the election, which they fdt would bring a Home Rule majority of at least 100.
