They didn’t get a majority government in 1910 like they did in 1906 which led them to think that social reform was the way to gain votes. Many politicians who came from modest backgrounds also wanted to “wage war” on poverty as they saw it as the scourge of modern day Britain and it was the governments job to fix
Germany then fell into a deep economic depression. Some people would agree that the ‘Wall Street Crash’ was the most important reason for the increase of support for the Nazis because the depression was a bad time for Germany and its people and Hitler said he could fix it. Germany’s “last hope”. He used this to gain the Nazis some support from the people. The depression made people bankrupt and lose their jobs; Hitler and the Nazis promised people that they would get them jobs and solve unemployment.
The last years of Henrys reign was dominated by conservative and reformist factions . In this essay I will assess the extent of the threat created due to the rivalry of factions that had affected the stability of the government. The execution of Cromwell (1940) was a success for conservatives as was also Henrys marriage to Catharine Haword. The marriage was a gateway to influencing Henry by carving out a new royal policy via Catharine H. This increased tension between the Reformists and conservatives and so the reformists took action to destroy the reputations of Cahrine H , Duke of Norfolk and Gardiner. On the contrary this shows that the disputes between these factions may imply that the King was weak and not in control thus significantly threatening the stability of government .
Despite starting on opposite sides of the political spectrum, the proposed statement that President Herbert Hoover was a conservative and President Franklin D Roosevelt was a liberal is largely accurate; evident in their policies toward dealing with the Great Depression. Herbert Hoover won the presidential election in 1928, right before the beginning of the Great Depression. Contrary to the conservative policies Hoover enforced during his presidency; Hoover’s campaign was largely focused on his more liberal ideologies, such as avoiding a laissez faire economic system and regulating business (Doc A). Hoover’s initial liberal agenda appealed to the public and helped him win in 1928. However, when the stock market crashed in 1929, President Hoover was faced with the challenges of helping the United States recover from a severe economic depression.
Schools were to be funded from local rates, including religious schools. This outraged the nonconformists because it meant that their taxes were being spent on schools in which they strongly objected. English nonconformists refused to pay their taxes. Another way in which Balfour lost the Conservatives popularity is by failing to take the part of the trade unions in the Taff Vale case. In 1901, a dispute had broken out in Wales between the Taff Vale Railway Company and the railway workers’ trade
Furthermore, with the help of R.A Butler and Heath, Macmillan quickly took control of the party and began the recovery process for the problems caused by Suez. It could also be argued that the events of the Suez crisis cause more damage to the labour party, than the fortunes of the tories, as seen in source 5 “there was no internal split in the conservative party”. However source 6 suggests Labour suffered “widespread disgust” and became far more unpopular. This was due to Labour opposing the war which caused the party to be seen by many working-class
What Evans means by this is that the desperation of the people led them to polarising their votes and seeing radical leaders like Hitler as a solution to the mess that Germany had become. Hitler took advantage of this, and from there was able to play a huge role in the collapse of the Weimar Republic. The economic strain that Germany was placed under was also a major impact of the Depression on the collapse of the Republic. Firstly, the Depression had the obvious impact of the debt rising and the banking crises however, there were a number other impacts. Germany relied heavily on international trade for resources; almost one third of their resources came from overseas.
Quincy Terrell Mrs. Stevens English III 10 December 2010 American’s Greed Leads to Poverty Republican nominee Herbert Hoover shared some hopeful words with Americans in 1928. He said that the day was in sight “when poverty will be banished from this nation.” This turned out to be was wishful thinking. One percent of the richest families in America during this time received one fourth of all U.S. income (Brinkley2). Buying stocks on margin became very popular during the 1920s. People began to abuse this system to invest huge amounts of imaginary money that only existed on paper, which back fired when the prices of stocks began to fall and they did not have money to pay for the stocks purchased (Lonkevich4).
These two projects became the key issues of the elections. The main difference between them was that in Roosevelt’s the government should control the bad trust, leaving the good one alone and free to operate while Wilson’s objective was to break up all trust and basically shun social-welfare proposals. Wilson won manly because the Republican party devided, because of this he’s also called a Minority President. During his ministry he tackled the “triple wall of privilege”: the tariff, the banks and the trusts. This benefited the American public.
Although our relations with America did improve, and have later proved to be very important, missing out on Europe was a major mistake. This has had an impact on many later governments, and ultimately towards the formation of the European Union. However, even though I see the years as being wasted, it can’t be denied that the 3 successive election victories the Conservatives had were impressive, and show that they did have popular support. Although unemployment remained low, house building increased, and Britons had ‘never had it so good’, I think that the mistakes outweigh these positives and the period can certainly be described as ‘thirteen wasted
