Lewis Baston: Disraeli’s “leap in the dark” towards modern democracy. 150 years on from the 1867 Reform Act. | Conservative Home
... The cause of extending the right to vote was only very partially satisfied by the 1832 Reform Act and, particularly during the 1840s, there were Chartist protests and petitions from the disenfranchised working class which culminated in a huge rally at Kennington in 1848. Gradual reform, even if not the democracy the Chartists wanted, attracted increasing establishment support and, during the 1850s, there were repeated moves to widen the franchise by lowering the property qualification for the vote (generally a Liberal idea) or creating new ‘fancy franchises’ for different categories, such as graduates or people who paid sufficient tax (generally a Conservative idea). None of these attempts was pursued with much energy: the hostility of Lord Palmerston, the Prime Minister, was a powerful block on progress, and the politics of electoral reform went quiet, except among enthusiasts such as the radical Liberal, John Bright. ...

Why it's back to school for London's luxury property developers

Why it's back to school for London's luxury property developers
... London is awash with Victorian schools whose voluminous proportions lend themselves perfectly to high-ceilinged, high-end, loft-style apartments. Take The Lycee building in Kennington - originally Kennington School, which counted Charlie Chaplin as a pupil, and now home to flats such as this one, owned by a well-known interior designer (he prefers to remain anonymous when it comes to his own home) and on the market for £1.3m through Dexters. The decadent and masculine black marble bathroom may bear little resemblance to what once graced this old institution, but the vendor’s design nod to the building’s school days include parquet flooring and a headmistress-style portrait painting that dominates the reception area.
