Certainly Disraeli was the most influential Conservative to broadcast such views, but the impact these speeches had is harder to identify. Eldridge, citing The Times as an example, argues that “apart from the sparkle of Disraeli’s oratory, little interest was shown in the [Crystal Palace] speech by contemporaries”, a view that many historians disagree with. Ward suggests that the Conservative victory in 1874 can be b... ... middle of paper ... ... Conservatism and the Conservative Party in Nineteenth Century Britain, Edward Arnold, London, 1988.

Parliament could have been a lot more generous with granting the King subsides, but perhaps it had good reason to. Again, the Divine Right of Kings was a strong reason why so little money was granted: Parliament needed to leash the King. The King failed to concede that the feudal system was becoming obsolete in a time when England was trying to lay the foundations of a more democratic system and technology was advancing quickly (it would be less than 150 years until the start of the Industrial Revolution).

Even though on his father’s side, Edward V was a legitimate noble York, the English nobility had little enthusiasm for seeing Elizabeth Woodville’s child, Edward V, sitting on the throne of England. It is reasonable to suppose that Richard of Gloucester, Edward IV’s youngest brother, shared the family’s antipathy for the pushy Woodville tribe. Richard of Gloucester, although a loyal supporter of his brother, Edward IV in all other things, was far from ecstatic over his new assignment to be Protector of the Prince, with responsibility for putting the crown on the head of his nephew, Edward of Westminster. Common Englishmen strongly supported their very popular King Edward IV; therefore, it is unlikely that they openly opposed his son Edward V, because his mother Queen Elizabeth was a Woodville.
Cromwell lived during a time of great political changes in Great Britain. He was one of the men that pushed forward the execution of King Charles I., because in his opinion he was not a good leader for the people and would never change his ways. After the death of the king, Parliament ran England - but still, in Cromwell’s point of view this system did not work effectively. He saw that the people in England were suffering and therefore he rose to become Protector of the Commonwealth. In spite of disagreements with Parliament, Cromwell brought peace and prosperity to England, which was one of the greatest benefits he earned for his country.
