In England, William Gladstone loses his seat in the ongoing General Election

In the July elections for the new Parliament in the United Kingdom, prominent and rising Liberal Party star, William Ewart Gladstone, lost his seat at Oxford University.  Gladstone, earlier a Conservative had angered his ultra-conservative constituency with his move to the left.  The nature of British elections enabled him to run immediately for a seat in more radical Lancashire where he was elected two days later, freeing him to become one of the most famous liberals in European history.  (By John Osborne)
