BRITAIN IN THE 1800S It is still the Victorian Era It is the middle of the Industrial Revolution! We are looking at political reform
TWO ENGLANDS What are the two Englands you ask? The RICH! (Nobles, Industrialists) The poor, industrial working class
POLITICAL REFORMS Rotten boroughs made representation unequal Redistribute seats in The House of Commons! Represent the PEOPLE!
VICTORIAN VALUES= REFORM Queen Victoria said the lower classes earn their earn their bread and riches so deservedly that they CANNOT and OUGHT not to be kept back This attitude helped bring about greater reform and equality in Britain.

TROUBLES IN SOCIETY AND THE ECONOMY Protective tariffs (taxes for imports) kept trade from growing Tariffs on imported grains (corn, wheat, barley and oats) caused high food prices Slavery still existed, even though the trading of slaves had been outlaawed The poor and women still struggle for a voice. Working conditions border on slavery, women are not free to vote and property rights were limited
