In this episode of BGTW (Britain Goes To War) we examine the reform bill of 1867. Though that may sound dull as dishwater, it was in fact a critical event in the history of Britain, not least because it pitted Gladstone and Disraeli against one another yet again, and bore witness to behind the scenes intrigue, political defections, shocking comebacks and finishers that came from out of nowhere! I may be joking about that last part, but regardless, take a listen to this episode and see what you think! Thankssssssssss as always :)

  • Just wanted to thank you for this series. You have finally made the maze of 19th century English parliamentary history somewhat clear (totally clear would be impossible, I think). Thanks again and I hope you can pick it up again in the future. P.S. I'd also be interested in your take on Anthony Trollope's Palliser novels. Minus
