Example text

Twenty years later Matthew Arnold could still claim that government in England is composed of 'a string of aristocratic personages, with one or two men from professional class who are engaged with them' (Perkin, 1969, p. 313). However legislation in the 1880s considerably loosened the grip of aristocracy and gentry on the state apparatus. In 1883 the Corrupt Practices Act made old methods of electioneering impossible. The 1884 Reform Act gave the vote to the farm labourer and divided the whole country into equal electoral districts resulting in the disappearance of small patronage-dominated boroughs.
