Out of The Race, 1864. Artist: John Tenniel Featured Print

Out of The Race, 1864. Artist: John Tenniel

Out of The Race, 1864. Gladstone says: Permit me to explain - Democracy - Palmerston replies: Oh, bother your explanations! You've blown your horse, and you're out of The Race. Here, an angry Palmerston leads Gladstone back to the stables, his horse having been blown. It is most probable that the race he is out of is the inevitable race to be the next leader of the Liberal Party, given that by now, Palmerston was approaching 80 years of age. In May 1864, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Mr Gladstone, spoke up in favour of a private member's bill proposing the extension of the borough franchise to £6. This was in spite of the fact that the government opposed the bill and that the PM, Palmerston, had actually requested that Gladstone avoid making any promises on behalf of the government. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 11, 1864

A Derby Obstruction, 1861 Featured Print

A Derby Obstruction, 1861

A Derby Obstruction, 1861. Disraeli is endeavouring to obstruct the passage of the phaeton being driven by Lord Palmerston, with Gladstone beside him and Lord Russell in the rear seat. Disraeli says Shan't get out o the way. I'd like to upset the lot of yer! Mr Gladstone's Budget of 1860 had proposed the abolition of the duties on paper. This created a crisis as the Conservative majority in the House of Lords chose to reject this particular proposal. Gladstone had been furious, so, in 1861, he altered the budged procedures, embodying all the year's financial proposals, including the repeal of the paper duties, into one enormous bill. If the Lords wanted to reject the repeal of the paper duties, they would have to reject the whole Budget proposal. There was vigorous and vociferous opposition to this plan from the Conservative opposition here represented by Disraeli seated on a small donkey-drawn cart. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 1, 1861
