The Second Reform Bill

This was a great relief to cobden who wrote to parkes on august 9th 1857: "the social and political state of that town is far more healthy than that of manchester; and it arises from the fact that the industry of the hardware district is carried on by small manufacturers, employing only a few men and boys each; sometimes only an apprentice or two: whilst the great manufacturers in manchester form an aristocracy, individual members of which wield an influence over sometimes two thousands persons... the great capitalist class formed an excellent basis for the anti-corn-law movement, for they had inexhaustible purses, which they opened freely in a contest where not only their pecuniary interests but their pride as "an order" was at stake,: but i very much doubt whether such a state of society is favourable to a democratic political movement...." the "state of society" in birmingham itself did not really provide a oasis for a reform movement, and bright was shrewd enough to see that nothing could be done without the organized workers. it is true that the reform act of 1832 had suppressed a number of rotten boroughs and had reduced a number of small towns to single-member constituencies, the representation being transferred to counties and new boroughs, but this was very far short of establishing the "equal electoral districts" demanded by the people's charter, thomas love peacock who in his "melincourt" of 1817 had brilliantly satirized the old unreformed system wrote in his preface to the 1856 edition: "the boroughs of onevote and threevotes have been extinguished; but there remain boroughs of fewvotes..." on the other hand greater london, with one-tenth of the population of england and wales; only returned 22 members to parliaments page four during the generation following 1832 the disproportion grew worse, since the under-represented towns were rapidly increasing in population while the old-fashioned county towns were often stagnating.

Ammunition for the Campaign

After proclaiming several times during 1957 that the united states would produce 'an absolutely clean bomb', he was forced to admit that an absolutely clean bomb is an impossibility, and that the 'clean' bomb to be exploded in the pacific this year will only be 96% clean. The tests must go on in order to perfect this weapon, described by the chairman of the u.s. atomic energy commission as the 'humanitarian h-bomb.' 30 the new reasoner of course, the admiral did not explain the scientific principles of the weapon, and for more than two years people have wondered what he meant; but the respite was gained, and that was what mattered.

T.A. Jackson - A Centenary appreciation

This dead¬ lock meant that walter and tommy had to abandon what might well have succeeded in being a successful revolutionary break-through into modern journalism - the party might have pipped it at the picture post. walter holmes devoted a complete workers notebook to this sad story, in 1955.i quote from it: "among the tributes which tommy jackson's death has evoked there is no mention of this win episode because few know the story. 26 27 our history titles available no. 18 no. 24 no. 36/7 no. 42 no. 57 no. 58 no. 60 no. 61 no. 62 no. 63 no. 64 no. 65 no. 67 no. 68 no. 69 no. 70 no. 71 no. 72 sheffield shop stewards (bill moore) 'the lancashire cotton famine (s broadbridge) 'prints of the labour movement 'class and ideology in bath (r s neale) nazis and monopoly capital (allan merson) kilsyth miners in the 1926 general strike (carter) time and motion strike (mick jenkins) middle-class opinion and the 1889 strike (g cronje) 1945-year of victory (george barnsby) ... the origins of capitalism (a christozvonov) imperialism and the labour movement (maclntyre) the general strike in lanarkshire (maclean) spain against fascism 1936-39 (nan green and a m elliott) workers' newsreels, 1920s & 30s (hogenkamp) rank and file movements in building 1910-20 (latham)

Alexander Macdonald and the Miners

the miners' & workmen's advocate, august 20, 1864 ** the miners' & workmen's advocate, august 27, 1864 page fifteen clearly, roberts saw this as the reason why he was not appointed legal advisers "they want a lawyer appointed by themselves - whom they may terrify and cajole, whom they can dismiss as they please rather than he should gain the hearts of the colliers - of the real men, the workers in the pits" * it was to the ordinary miner that, quite unequivocally, towers' journal addressed itself, it called upon them to boycott both the special conference in manchester on september 20th and the council's petition to parliaments no money should be sent to the national treasurer. the british miners' benefit society the first milestone along this lengthy and tortuous road was the british miners' benefit society, this was not so much a trade union as an attempt, by performing some of the functions customarily associated with trade unions, to render the formation of an organisation on a specifically working class basis unnecessary.
