  • D.L.G became prime minister on 7th December 1916. He formed a coalition government- showing how he was willing to work together with other parties even if they didn't share the same view. ( 100 Lib M.Ps support)
  • LABOUR Initial divisions between pro-war and peace elements in the party But the party gains from inclusion in Asquith and Lloyd George coalitions Breach with Lloyd George strengthens the party's moral status Adoption of a constitution adds to the party's political stability and acceptability 1918 electrol reform helps treble (x3) its popular support
  • In 1917 Lloyd George released a private letter stating that Britain would starve to death within 4 weeks if the War efforts continued. This was also due to the attack on U.S.A stopping imports. Here Lloyd George could have tried to come to an agreement with the Germans, but he didn't. This shows his strong determination and his true belief that Britain could win the war.
  • THE LIBERALS WERE DAMAGED BY: The extension of state power, an affront to liberals. The impact of Lloyd George's premiership Effects of electrol reform Loss of active support at grassroots levels Personal dispute between leaders
  • THE CONSERVATIVES GAINED FROM: Inclusion in Asquith and Lloyd George governments Consistent support for the war wins the patriotic vote. 1918 electrol reform benefits the party War experience of young conservative candidates broadens the party's understanding of society Attention paid to party organisation and fund raising
