 British politics : Politics of the United Kingdom
The last General Election for the House of Commons was held on June 7, 2001.
After performing poorly in the elections of 1922, 1923 and 1924, the Liberal Party was superseded by the Labour Party as the party of the left, and inheritor of the spirit of the Whig movement.
Labour were badly defeated by the Conservatives in the general election of 1983 and Michael Foot was replaced by the more moderate Neil Kinnock as leader of the Labour party, who expelled the far left-wing Militant group, and moderated many of the parties policies.

 Election Resources on the Internet: Parliamentary Elections in the U.K. - Elections to the House of Commons
The United Kingdom Parliament is composed of the Crown, that is the monarch, the House of Lords, an appointive and hereditary upper chamber, and the popularly elected lower chamber, the House of Commons.
For general election purposes, the United Kingdom is currently divided into 646 constituencies, each of which returns one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons, elected for a maximum term of five years.
The outcome of a general election is actually decided in these seats, and political parties concentrate their efforts in retaining their own marginals, and capturing those held by their opponents.

 BALDWIN, Stanley @ Archontology.org: presidents, kings, prime ministers, biography, database
In November 1923 Parliament was dissolved, but the General Election on the tariff and free trade issues did not bring an overall majority to any party (Conservative 258, Labour 191, Liberal 158, others 8).
Following the defeat of the Labour Government in the General Election, Baldwin was asked to form his second administration and became Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury on 4 Nov 1924.
The General Election of 30 May 1929 over the issues of unemployment and the Trade Disputes Act made the balance of power dependent on the Liberals (Labour 287, Conservative 260, Liberal 59, others 9) and Baldwin resigned on 5 Jun 1929.

 Iraq costs Blair dearly at the polls
When the UK general election was called, the ruling Labour Party expected to be re-elected with another big majority.
Until the ballots were counted, the election outcome was uncertain because many core Labour supporters, deeply disillusioned over Iraq, told pollsters they would either abstain from voting or switch allegiance to the anti-war Liberal Democrats.
The surprise of the election was the incredibly strong showing of the anti-war Liberal Democrats in many normally safe Labour seats.

 United Kingdom general election, 2005 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The general election took place in 646 constituencies across the United Kingdom, for seats in the House of Commons.
In Northern Ireland, the election was dominated in the unionist community by a battle between the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
Other elections in the province have shown both a shift in votes towards the DUP but also a collapse of support for the cross-community Alliance Party which is likely to be more marked in a first past the post election and thus which may work in the UUP's favour.

The Kingdom led a precarious existence at best, and was notable inasmuch as it's rulers converted to Judaism; several are buried in Jerusalem.
Far more likely scenarios that have been proposed are that they are remnants of Jewish military colonists at Elephantine, in Egypt, who moved south and intermarried with Ethiopian tribes; or, alternatively, that they are descendents of exiled tribes who left Judea during the Babylonian or even Assyrian conquests.
Ultimately the Muslims were successful however, but their punitively harsh attitudes toward the Berbers in general resulted in North Africa being a hotbed of religious heterodoxy and outright schism for centuries - the Fatamid Caliphs are probably the best-known example.

With united voice the people concurred in the excellence and purity of his administration--a wonderful tribute, one which would be almost inconceivable in, our day, in which we find that even the best and noblest officials are sure to have enemies, traducers, backbiters, slanderers.
