i say that i love it when to be honest all i know is 'the first reform act was in 1832. it was a start.' and 'the second one was in 1867. it followed on a bit'

it's a deep and profound love

I'm pretty impartial to it tbh. It's gotten to the point where I'm doing it for the grade and competent enough to not find it horriby difficult.

Though, it seems as if we're doing this topic just to do it (I've done pure US History since college), which I dislike. Meh.

Okay, I cant be bothered to type the list of 15 questions but I'll do a few with the year they came up.

In the period 1830-1931, both the improved organisation of existing political parties and the emergence of new ones are best explained by changes in the electoral system. How far do you agree with this judgement " (2008)

To what extent was pressure for reform outside parliament the key factor in determining changes in the size and compostion of the electorate in 1830-1931 ? (2008)

To what extent was the declinig politicla power of the aristocracy the key factor in the development of a represetative system of parliamentary goverment in Britain 1832-1931 ? (2007)

To what extent did the develpment in politcal parties reflect the chnages made to the size and composition of the electorate in Britian in the period 1830--1931 ? (2007)

Okay, I cant be bothered to type out anymore.

However, I can tell you that in every paper since 2002 there has been a question on the "development/transformation" of politcal parties, usually linked to the changes in electoral system/extension of the franchise as a stated factor.

I'm so screwed. I only know what each reform did, why it was passed and how they impacted on the political parties.

Also why did the political parties change other than reform?

After discussing how the earlier reforms changed the nature of the Political Parties and their organization, make sure you discuss the emergence of the Labour Party after 1900 as a result of these and how this affected the system of representation (: That should take up a fairly hefty part of the essay as the growing influence of the Labour party caused the Liberals to pass the 1918 act.

Ahh right. Thanks for that.

Do I need to mention 1846 Corn Law (and its split) and Irish home rule then? What would these fall under seeing they are not related to changes in the electorate? just other?

I'm still not seeing how the rise of the labour party as a counter argument isn't related to changes in the electorate - seeing 1884 effectively generated its userbase?

Extension of the franchise is the key factor in the rise of Labour, as well as the development of all other parties. Ths is the most important facotr but there is 5/6 others that you need to include in an question on political parties.

Can you name them? I'm so weak in this area and despite reading the book and notes I can't seem to extract them.

Determination of the aristocracy to retain power
Role of indivuduals
Changes in political theory .. e.g you link the growth of socialist ideas to development of Labour
Extra-parliamentary pressure
Changing Socio-economic situation eg.. growth of middle-class
