The Conservatives won seats at the general election and had a majority, forming the first majority government since The Court Party soon became known as the Tories , a name that has stuck despite the official name being 'Conservative'.
The term "Tory" originates from the Exclusion Bill crisis of - the Whigs were those who supported the exclusion of the Roman Catholic Duke of York from the thrones of England, Ireland and Scotland, and the Tories were those who opposed it.
The Rochdale Radicals were a group of more extreme reformists who were also heavily involved in the cooperative movement. They sought to bring about a more equal society, and are considered by modern standards to be left-wing.
After becoming associated with repression of popular discontent in the years after , the Tories underwent a fundamental transformation under the influence of Robert Peel , himself an industrialist rather than a landowner, who in his " Tamworth Manifesto " outlined a new "Conservative" philosophy of reforming ills while conserving the good.
Though Peel's supporters subsequently split from their colleagues over the issue of free trade in , ultimately joining the Whigs and the Radicals to form what would become the Liberal Party , Peel's version of the party's underlying outlook was retained by the remaining Tories, who adopted his label of Conservative as the official name of their party.
The Conservatives were in government for eighteen years between —, under the leadership of the first-ever female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher , and former Chancellor of the Exchequer John Major — Their landslide defeat at the general election saw the Conservative Party lose over half their seats gained in , and saw the party re-align with public perceptions of them.
The Conservatives lost all their seats in both Scotland and Wales, and was their worst defeat since The Conservative Party is the only party in the history of the United Kingdom to have been governed by a female Prime Minister.
At one point during his party had a parliamentary minority for a short period after he ejected a large number of party members, of which some were subsequently allowed to return for the General Election.
After the election the Tories returned with a majority government under Johnson. This resulted in the merger between the Conservatives and Joseph Chamberlain's Liberal Unionist Party , composed of former Liberals who opposed Irish home rule.
The unionist tendency is still in evidence today, manifesting sometimes as a scepticism or opposition to devolution, firm support for the continued existence of the United Kingdom in the face of movements advocating independence from the UK, and a historic link with the cultural unionism of Northern Ireland.
The Labour Party won the second-largest number of seats in the House of Commons at the general election, with seats overall, 60 seats less than The history of the Labour Party goes back to , when a Labour Representation Committee was established and changed its name to "The Labour Party" in After the First World War , this led to the demise of the Liberal Party as the main reformist force in British politics.

During this second period, Margaret Thatcher , who became Leader of the Conservative Party in , made a fundamental change to Conservative policies, turning the Conservative Party into an economically liberal party.
At the general election , she defeated James Callaghan 's Labour government following the Winter of Discontent.

The SDP formed an alliance with the Liberal Party which contested the and general elections as a pro-European, centrist alternative to Labour and the Conservatives.
After some initial success, the SDP did not prosper partly due to its unfavourable distribution of votes by the First-Past-The-Post electoral system , and was accused by some of splitting the Labour vote.

Kinnock progressively expelled members of Militant , a far left group which practised entryism , and moderated many of the party's policies.
Despite these changes, as well as electoral gains and also due to Kinnock's negative media image, Labour was defeated at the and general elections, and he was succeeded by Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer , John Smith.
