 United Kingdom general election, 1970 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United Kingdom general election of 1970 was held on June 18, 1970, and resulted in a surprise loss of power for Labour under Harold Wilson, who was replaced as Prime Minister by the Conservative leader, Edward Heath.
The election was also a setback for the Liberal Party under its new leader Jeremy Thorpe, which lost half its seats.
Most opinion polls prior to the election had predicted a comfortable Labour victory, and had put Labour 12.4% ahead of the Conservatives.

Further, the United Kingdom interprets the requirement in article 6 concerning `reparation or satisfaction' as being fulfilled if one or other of these forms of redress is made available and interprets `satisfaction' as including any form of redress effective to bring the discriminatory conduct to an end.
The United States understands that the identification of the rights protected under the Convention by reference in article 1 to fields of `public life' reflects a similar distinction between spheres of public conduct that are customarily the subject of governmental regulation, and spheres of private conduct that are not.
Austria is further of the view that a general reservation of the kind made by the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which does not clearly specify the provisions of the Convention to which it applies and the extent of the derogation therefrom, contributes to undermining the basis of international treaty law.

The United Kingdom general election of 2005 was held on Thursday, 5 May 2005 and won by the Labour Party, led by Tony Blair.
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) to be the region's largest unionist party in Parliament.
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 Prime Minister may call for the dissolution of Parliament at any time within five years of the date of the previous general election, although typically at least four years elapse before a new election is considered.
The general election will take place in 646 constituencies in the United Kingdom, for seats in the House of Commons, although a number of constituency boundaries will change (in England and Wales especially, due to the ten year periodical review rule) from those used at the previous general election.
Parties with representation at the previous general election at Westminster include the Democratic Unionist Party, Health Concern, Plaid Cymru, RESPECT The Unity Coalition, the Scottish National Party, Sinn Féin (who do not take their seats as they will not swear the oath of allegiance), the Social Democratic and Labour Party, and the Ulster Unionist Party.

I would accept as a general principle Mr Munby's second submission (that the question is to be judged objectively in the light of such inferences as would be drawn by any informed third party coming to the case from outside).
The multifaceted nature of the general principle may be demonstrated by considering the various rules in which it is reflected in English domestic law.
But the rules of election have been evolved in English law because they were thought a reasonable application of th general principle about not blowing hot and cold in the particular context of inconsistent remedies.

The 1847 UK general election saw candidates calling themselves Conservatives win the most seats, in part because they won a number of uncontested seats.
However, the split among the Conservatives between Protectionists led by the Earl of Derby and free traders led by Sir Robert Peel left the Whigs, led by Prime Minister Lord John Russell, in a position to continue in government.
The Irish Repeal group won more seats than in the previous general election, while the Chartists gained the only seat they were ever to hold.

The economy of the United Kingdom is the fifth largest of the OECD-countries.
The international trading tradition created a feeling that the United Kingdom was separate from 'mainland Europe' and there was opposition from many people who thought that conceding power to any outside body meant loss of national sovereignty.
As a consequence, the United Kingdom was initially more interested in creating a European free trade area which would involve no sacrifice of national sovereignty, with the result that in 1959 the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) was created by Britain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Portugal, Iceland and Switzerland, with Finland as an associate member.
