AQA, The State and People: Britain 1918-1964, HIS3J, Monday 8th JuneWatch this thread
If anyone can help me for a practise question I'm doing I'd be grateful.
Fall of labour 1931: what was due to events out of Macdonald's control and what was due to his poor leadership?
0 1 ‘Lloyd George fell from power in 1922 because he was “the prisoner of theConservatives”.’Assess the validity of this view.[45 marks]
0 2 ‘British governments, in the years 1929 to 1951, were unsuccessful in dealing witheconomic problems.’Assess the validity of this view.[45 marks]
0 3 'The dominance of the Conservatives, in the years 1951 to 1964, was due to divisionswithin the Labour Party.'Assess the validity of this view.[45 marks]
I'm 100% sure there will be a question on economic problems, and how well they were dealt with, either during the 1930s or across the whole period. I also think that there will be a question on both of the Labour governments, either why they fell or how successful they were.
Also there was a question on the economy last year?
why did you delete the sources you put up? so pathetic lol, why put them up in the first place?
I can only assume you're so clearly upset about it because you didn't get to see them hahaa.
Our teachers told us to focus on the General Strike, Minority Labour Govts, Churchill and 1945 election (with it being the 70th anniversary), comparison questions MacDonald vs Attlee, comparison of Baldwin vs Churchill and Post 1945 Economy such as nationalisation, Labours adaptation on Keynes, 'Super-Mac' etc.
What do people think is gonna come up on Monday? My teacher says they usually put one on of later dates like 60s as they think it catches people out who rushed through the end of the course. I think it could be on Churchill as a leader as I don't think they've asked on just him before?
There seems to be a general agreement that the 1945 election is likely to come up, has your teacher said anything about that? In relation to the latter end of the course, perhaps something on '13 wasted years' or consensus politics. Maybe it will be a comparison question, assessing the achievements of the conservatives vs earlier governments, or comparing leaders?
Yeah we have gone over that quite a bit as she is sure it'll be something to do with 1945 time so I'm gonna go over why labour won again/conservatives didn't. She also thought perhaps the Welfare state reasons for it could be a possible question which I'd like as I've already done an essay on that! Yeah I think maybe a comparison leader one but I have a feeling the conservative 13 years in power may be a question. I just know it won't be on LG again which is a shame as I feel that would be an easier leader/time period to do on.
