There was no British general election in 1900. Does the writer mean 1902?

  • Just search for Google for "general election 1900", and you'll find hundreds of references to the British general election in 1900. There wasn't one in 1902, though. Warofdreams talk 17:05, 25 November 2005 (UTC)

Irish Nationalist votes[edit]

The article says the Irish Party got 88 seats on the basis of only 35,000 votes or so. Surely taht cannot be right. The Irish Party was the dominant force in Ireland and must have had a much bigger total vote. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

The Irish Nationalists won most of their seats without a contest; they didn't take any votes at all in those seats. Warofdreams talk 14:52, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

Mapping metropolitan areas and Ireland.[edit]

The election maps for the 20th century are really useful. I wondered if it would be possible to also map Ireland up until it's separation as well as Northern Ireland throughout the period, as to just show Great Britain does not give us the whole picture. It is also very difficult to see what is going on in metropolitan areas particularly London. Is it possible to find an insert that shows London close-up? Where are the maps from? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:21, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

2 + 27 = 29[edit]

sorry, I'm no native speaker.

Tha table says there was a plus of 28 seats for Labour.

Keir Hardie and Richard Bell were the zwo LRC members of parliament in 1900.

I guess the plus was in fact 27 seats . --Neun-x (talk) 10:11, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
