    Yes it was:
    "Opened a door"
    Less gov control over seats (treasury ones)
    Undermined lords etc
    Im gunna talk about Henry Hunts view on why it was great
    obv increase in voters
    orangisation - mainly tory (tamworth etc)
    tackled some corruption

    then no it is ( i can rmember all these)
    No women, ballot, payment of Mp's etc
    property qualification
    north under rep
    corruption remained (bribery)
    elections still expensive
    lords had control over seats
    land owners control over seats
    only 1/7 could vote
    still needed redistribution
    still none contested seats
    dominated by aristocracy still

    im sure there is more lol... I really hope this comes up!
