Example text

Grey and Haldane, despite earlier protestations to the contrary, accepted the position and the Relugas compact collapsed. The main task facing Campbell-Bannerman's admimstration was to prepare for victory in the forthcoming general election. With the party machine, under Herbert Gladstone, very much in preparedness, and with Campbell-Bannerman's own position both in the party and in the country very much stronger than in 1900, Liberals prepared for the election in a mood of confidence. Although the campaign proper did not begin until after Christmas, the opening broadside was delivered by Campbell-Bannerman in a speech at the Albert Hall on 22 December.

These younger politicians were often far more concerned with the issues of social reform than with the traditional Gladstonian Liberal shibboleths. The shake-up given to the party leadership in 1885-6 had done much to speed up their rise within the Liberal Party hierarchy. However, the most distinctive feature of the internal development of the Liberal Party after 1886 was the growth in influence within the party of the National Liberal Federation, whose offices moved to London in October 1886.

The Liberals lost ground in the English counties and in Scotland, but improved their position in Wales, where opposition to the war in South Africa was strongest. Scotland and the large cities showed most enthusiasm for the war. The result was of little comfort for Campbell-Bannerman, who now found himself in the unenviable position of an opposition leader who had led his party to a crushing electoral defeat, and whose most able colleagues openly followed the lead of a rival statesman. And yet, although the election had exposed Liberal divisions, curiously the result of the election was to make the chances of a real breakaway from the party less likely.
