      It is less likely to happen here, we are given to believe, than anywhere else in the world. Skewed Priorities : Part of what fuels the crisis in "Act of God" is that Churchill, who just sees the Great Smog enveloping London and causing chaos as a bit of bad weather, gets a bee in his bonnet about Prince Philip taking up flying as a hobby and begins to fixate on preventing that rather than doing anything about the fact that London has been virtually brought to a lawless standstill by the smog. That is the sort of Opposition of which we have had hardly any experience for two years back ; but it is the sort of Opposition which, if the Conservatives and the Irishmen know what they are about, they will try to revive, or they may discover to their cost what the impatience and dis- gust of a great nation really mean. He has dropped his old stance in support of a democratic state of Israel-Palestine, dropped his opposition to the "chilling" IHRA definition of anti-Semitism and expelled and suspended some of his oldest and closest allies for breaches of that definition.

      A witty Irishman is reported to have said recently to Mr. Despite the illegality of this operation, the British Army and the Royal Irish Constabulary did nothing to intercept it. In Britain during the years immediately prior to the outbreak of the imperialist war inrising tensions in continental Europe and beyond had not been a matter of great concern. Butt-Monkey : Much mocked around for his perceived dullness. A blatant, brazen and wholly illegal intention to subvert British democracy. Rather, a party is Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition by virtue of being the political party with the most seats in opposition.

      The truth undoubtedly is that all the three sections of Opposition, the Regulars, the Parnellites, and the Fourth Party, have lost credit with the country, just in proportion to the amount of time they have wasted, and the obstruction they have caused. Many historians would agree that this pretty accurately sums up the two as Prime Ministers with regard to Churchill's second term, at least. Parnell, "Sure, Parnell, ye know ye never were a Parnellite ;" and so we may be sure that after many of the demonstrations into which poor Sir Stafford Northcote has been forced, some Moderate Conservative like Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, for instance might very justly have said to Sir Stafford, "You know, Northcote, you never were a Northcotite. Clothing Reflects Personality : While most officials at No. It is against this background that the Asquith government in introduced the long-delayed and obstructed Irish Home Rule Bill.

Not So Different : He confesses that, despite his working-class background and appeal, he's never done any manual labour and prefers the finer things e. And all fear blood. While the armed forces can and do overrule parliamentary government in some countries, it could never happen here.

Any hopes of home rule would only proceed on the basis of partition — the separation of part or all of the province of Ulster from the rest of Ireland.

They and their allies in the armed forces therefore argued spuriously that since the constitutional means to prevent the break-up of the United Kingdom no longer existed, they had no choice but to resort to extra-parliamentary means.

That afternoon at the big parade all the animals are there, and all are doing their duty. Ironic Echo : A subtle example, but one which demonstrates Character Development.

Mule, horse, elephant, or bullock, he obeys his driver, and the driver his sergeant, and the sergeant his lieutenant, and the lieutenant his captain, and the captain his major, and the major his colonel, and the colonel his brigadier commanding three regiments, and the brigadier his general, who obeys the Viceroy, who is the servant of the Empress.

It is shared by the Tory leadership, most of their supporters in the Tory press and much of the political establishment. There need to be enough people to man the Select Committees and the Bill Committees of the House, often working at the same time as other MPs need to be in the main Commons chamber keeping the debate going.

A witty Irishman is reported to have said recently to Mr. A cautious and uncharismatic man, he is nevertheless well-respected by the public for his bold, innovative policies.

The Ghost : He never receives a proper introduction as Prime Minister since he's appointed in the last episode of Season 2, and defeated by Harold Wilson in the first episode of Season 3.

It is theoretically possible but unlikely for the third place party to form the opposition if the two larger parties should form a coalition government.

Indeed, the reason of the excessive obstructive- ness of the Opposition of the last two years is simply this,—that neither of its chief constituents has been properly organised ; neither has Sir Stafford Northeote exerted any efficient control over the Tories, nor has Mr.

GREAT BRITAIN: His Majesty's Loyal Opposition

Nothing could be more hazardous for a religious minority of justpeople than that. The new monarch, George V, made no secret of his opposition to Irish home rule, telling Asquith that there should be another election before the Home Rule Bill was put onto the statute book, although there was absolutely no constitutional obligation to do so.

My Country, Right or Wrong : The KGB has made attempts to recruit him due to his socialist beliefs several times but to no avail, he is loyal to a country, with all its problems, he views as great. Cigar Chomper : He's often seen smoking a cigar. The truth undoubtedly is that all the three sections of Opposition, the Regulars, the Parnellites, and the Fourth Party, have lost credit with the country, just in proportion to the amount of time they have wasted, and the obstruction they have caused.

Parnell exerted any efficient con- trol over his followers. He even gives a loud aside to his wife disapproving of Lord Mountbatten's presiding over Indian independence and remarking that Philip's sisters married prominent Nazis, establishing him as a staunch Imperialist clinging to the glory of the good old days, a hopeless will.

Whilst doing so much of the work, Eden lives under the shadow of the great war leader and national myth Churchill. And Sir Stafford Northcote, though every one gives him credit for thoroughly disliking the work he has to do, has lost far more in popularity since the elections of than the Government have lost by the em- barrassments which they have had to suffer at his hands.

The screw-gun mule talks of the need to keep one's head and do one's duty in the most precipitous places.
