Storyboard Text

  • Conscription
  • We need more volunteers for the war effort!
  • We can't force people to take part in this war!
  • War Cabinet
  • We need to take action, Asquith is unfit to lead our country in time of war, we need our combined strength to endure this war.
  • This could definitely benefit our party...
  • Liberal Divisions
  • You have left me no choice, if half of my own party won't follow me then another party will.
  • I refuse to join you and the Conservatives, I'm still the leader of this party!
  • In April 1916, after a public disagreement with DLG, Asquith accepted conscription. In September 1914, 450,000 people had volunteered for the war. Conscription was introduced in Jan 1916.
  • Wartime P.M.
  • DLG continued to call for a smaller war cabinet (excluding Asquith but including Bonar Law and Edward Carson). On 7th December 1916 DLG became P.M. with Conservative Ministers.
  • In December 1916, 130 of the 272 Liberal MPs declared they would follow DLG. Asquith ceased to be PM but remained the part leader. This meant that there was a full split in the party.
  • When DLG took over as P.M. in late 1916, British morale was at it's lowest point. Intense U Boat attacks, sinking ships and interrupting supplies threatened to stretch British resources to breaking point. In April 1916 he confided that Britain would starve in a month.
