    How would you answer a question on political writers?? That's harsh!

    Anyway turning points - 1867 was the specimen, 1884/5 in june 02, WWI in june 03.

    Other question (main reason behind reform): fear of popular hostility (specimen), extra-parliamentary pressure, and landed elite's determinatin to hold onto power

    fear of popular hostility... wouldnt like that one! The political writers one would be a *****! you talk about how their writings influenced movements like charism, the national reform league, Mill's work on women influenced millicent fawcett then early femist writers. Tom Paine was a bigger writter too, you talk about him and the american civil war and how that influenced 1867. Then you would say however: effects of war, individauls, party advantage, pressure groups, zeigeist for revolutuion and so on

    fear of popular hostility would be ok... because you can interpret it as fear of rioting/revolution (i.e. 1832, and run up to WWI) or fear of being unpopular, and then you turn it into a party/personal advantage question (which would be most of them)

    I know nothing about political writers.... seriously, its just not something we do at our school. Is it part of the syllabus?

    someone's in the same boat as me. I will also cry if 1832 is not the turning point question, as I'm so ready for that. I've got Fascist Italy (Unit 4) straight after, and hope a bad Unit 5 won't put me off.

    so you wern't taught political writers either? Is it even part of the syllabus? I hope something like chartism or votes for women or role of the state comes up. I've tried to cover everything, but it just seems to be such a HUGE syllabus- we've got to know all the reform acts, all the pressure groups, all turning points etc....but it is a sources paper....oh well.

    These are the two bullet points in the specification off the website:

    In what ways did the size and composition of the electorate change in the period?

    How did the electoral changes effect the parties?

    my teachers went to some meeting about the exam and they talked about political writers and thats why he taught us it, im not sure if you would just link it in with popular pressure or whatever. My teacher can go over the top with depth of stuff we have loads of different text books etc but he gets lots of A's and full marks so i dont complain!
