    I'm doing the 25 marker for Government and Politics AS: why are some pressure groups more successful than others
    I haven't got very good notes on these two topics
    -Celebrity endorsement ( and why this can help a pressure group )
    -Organisation ( and why this can help a pressure group )

    Help would be appreciated thanks

    I'm stuck on this question too but the only answer i can come up with is Charlton Heston- president of the NRA. He was a movie star in planet of the apes so he like is pretty famous yano. I guess hes an example of celebrity endorsement?

    And i guess the more organised and less 'messy' a pressure group is the better?

    Speak about the different types of pressure groups, such as Insider and Outsider. Certain pressure groups such as the BMA or the Policing Federation and how they have close ties to government, allowing them to have direct contact with Government Ministers. Perhaps even mention how Trade Unions in times of Labour Government were incredibly powerful but died of once Thatcher took power.

    For organisation you can mention how if you have a lack of organisation then events won't run smoothly so you can't get your cause or movement out there and well known resulting in you not raising awareness
