Coupon Election

War had ended under a coalition government headed by Lloyd George with representatives of the conservatives, liberals and labour parties, none who fully supported the conservatives. There were then further divisions within the party

  • Conservative MPs generally supported the coalition with only a minority of dissenters
  • Liberal MPs more evenly divided - 1/3 supporting Lloyd George(& Coalition) and 2/3 supporing Asquith
  • Labour deeply divided over the war - as war went on labour worked to repair the pslit and as war ended official labour support was withdrawn with a small minority disagreeing

Lloyd George & liberal supporters anxious to continue coalition - majority of the conservatives agreed.
