During the reign of Elizabeth I, the Privy Council and court were the centre of the Elizabethan government. Although parliament was Elizabeth’s necessary method of legislation and raising taxes, it was far from being a regular part of the governmental system (only being called 13 times during her reign). A leading debate arose when the historian Sir John Neale argued that there was a considerable amount of conflict between MPs and the queen. Whereas revisionists, such as Graves and Sir Geoffrey Elton, challenged this view and argued that the relationship was one of co-operation. I agree with the views of Elton that over Elizabeth’s 46 year reign there was much success, however she faced a
In 1588, Queen Elizabeth I delivered a speech to motivate her troops, which were mostly untrained farmers for a battle. In 1940, Winston Churchill, Great Britain's new Prime Minister, delivered his speech to inspire and communicate effectively with the House of Commons. Both these speaker’s speeches are close in similarities; however, they do contain a few differences. The speeches of Queen Elizabeth I and Winston Churchill to their respective audiences are communicated through rhetorical choices to connect with the people, which led them to victory. Queen Elizabeth I’s speech to her troops was more effective in that she appealed to their loyalty to country and God as a path to victory. While Winston Churchill’s speech was successful and
Former British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher wrote a powerful eulogy for former U.S. President Ronald Reagan. In her eulogy, she highlighted his professional accomplishments and her relationship with former President Reagan, both as a leader and a friend. She lists descriptive examples of accomplishments that he achieved while being president. Thatcher used different types of figurative language and rhetorical strategies to make light of the difficult time.
Her economic policies were another success for Thatcher’s regime. Thatcher’s policies were monumental changes for Britain. Privatisation and deregulation were famous changes implemented by Thatcher. The policy of Privatisation has been called "a crucial ingredient of Thatcherism". After the 1983 election the sale of state utilities accelerated; more than £29 billion was raised from the sale of nationalised industries, and another £18 billion from the sale of council houses. The process of privatisation, especially the preparation of nationalised industries for privatisation, was associated with marked improvements in performance, particularly in terms of labour productivity. Some of the privatised industries including gas, water, and electricity, were natural monopolies for which privatisation involved little increase in competition. The privatisation allowed people to become more involved in the buying of shares in companies. Although this did not work as well as Thatcher would have hoped as many of the richer part of society bought as many shares at they could. Many people denounced this policy as an Elitist policy. The privatisation of public companies was combined with financial deregulation in an attempt to encourage economic growth. Geoffrey Howe Thatcher’s Chancellor of the
Former prime minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher, in her eulogy, describes the strides that Ronald Reagan accomplished. Thatcher’s purpose is to honor Ronald Reagan during his time as a former United States of America President. She establishes a genuine tone in order to appeal to the grief and mournings of American citizens.
Margaret Thatcher, in her eulogy for Ronald Reagan, described him as every person would wished to be talked about. She lauds upon his good nature and successful actions as president. Her use of informal diction, parallel structure, and satire had the effect of giving Ronald Reagan's life a memorable ending.
The laborers in the mines are being completely victimized in order to make money, clearly demonstrated by Disraeli’s words. Child labor abuse was not exclusive to coal mines however.
She describes Reagan as a “great president, a great American, and a great man” that she and America had lost. The repetition of “great” emphasizes the roles she lists after, and that he fulfilled each well. She directs people’s thoughts towards his accomplishments when he was alive. Thatcher also discusses how he fought to establish the “free world, and to free the slaves” trapped in communism. This stresses the impact he was able to have, not just in his country, but also all over the world. By saying he was “freeing” people from communism, she establishes the communist countries as an evil that people need to be saved from, an idea which she continues later in the eulogy. Lastly, she details how Ronald Reagan won support from “every class and every nation” for his policies. This creates a united support for Reagan and what he stood for from American citizens and those throughout the world. It shows that he was such a great leader everyone, even people who weren’t under his power, agreed with him. Thatcher uses repetition to emphasize Reagan’s impact on the nation and the
In her speech, Thatcher goes through and illustrates that even though in the end of the Cold War, Ronald Reagan won out, and America came through, not everyone was supportive of his plans. In fact, many of the American citizens had been skeptical about his plans when he chose to make an agreement with the man who had turned from ally to enemy in recent years before that. Not many people could see why Reagan would make such a bold move, but Thatcher knew that there was a reason the two conflicting countries had gotten through without firing a shot, and that reason was because Reagan knew what he was doing. In her speech, Margaret Thatcher uses the
Source A could be considered to have great value to a historian studying the impact of Margaret Thatcher’s Social and Economic policies, as it comes from a speech that Margaret Thatcher made herself 5 years into her premiership. This lends the source some value, as it comes from Thatcher’s own point of view, and therefore could be considered to be very valuable to a historian studying the impact of Thatcher’s policies as no one would know more about how she arrived at her decisions and what her intentions were than Thatcher herself. It could however be argued that the fact this source comes from Thatcher herself is in fact a detriment to its value, as she will be more likely to defend herself and her actions rather than speaking honestly about
Reagan was a kind, easy going, down-to-earth kind of guy which he portrayed through his television and radio talks. Even when he was shot in the chest, he was able to keep a smile on his face and joke with his wife. He was a very confident president and was great at giving Americans what they wanted. But political analysts disliked him for his simplistic view of the world (“Ronald Wilson Reagan”). He was given the name Great Communicator because of his ability to maintain support of the nation, even when his policies were not going well (“Ronald Wilson Reagan”). “Reagan was a hero to much of the American public and a villain and idiot to many political pundits” (“Ronald Wilson Reagan”). Conservatives thought that his administrative style was too easy going (“Ronald Wilson Reagan”). But he was admired by the public for his patriotism, commitment to traditional moral values, and hatred of communism (“Ronald Wilson Reagan”). However Reagan’s legacy is still very
“A great president, a great American, and a great man...” While these characteristics could undoubtedly be used to describe many American Presidents, the words from Margaret Thatcher’s eulogy for Ronald Reagan describe a man who helped pull the United States together during the tense Cold War period and eventually defeated the communist Soviet Union. By using rhetorical strategies such as flattery, nostalgia, and patriotism, Margaret Thatcher successfully moves the audience of this message and convinces them that Ronald Reagan was the perfect American and someone they should strive to be like. At the same time, she uses clever diction to reinforce the idea that Great Britain is a great ally of the US. This is successful because of her high praise of the American President’s ideals while saying that she, and all of Britain agreed with him.
A. The current mission of the Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless is to provide assistance to vulnerable populations in the city of Elizabeth and throughout Union county. The coalition breaks this larger mission among smaller sections that all play a role in helping the Coalition provide advocacy and education for those peoples in need. Since 1981 the Coalition has been housed in a converted church. There have been few noticeable changes outside of the grey security door that allows entrance from the side. Even if one wasn’t sure that this place used to serve as a church there is still the religious sign of the large sloping roof that is commonly associated with certain Christian houses of
The first source, a political cartoon from Opposing Viewpoints, depicts a Federal Soup Kitchen with complex machinery in place of a simple spoon. On the pipes of the machine, there are words such as: Bureaucracy, Paperwork, Grants, and on the top Welfare Spending. As well, there is a man operating the machine with an apron titled liberal. This image depicts a conservative viewpoint of a welfare state. Rejecting the principle of social programs, clearing stating that the system does not work, pointing out the ridiculous ropes welfare goes through to get to the people. This source has aligned with a Classical Liberalist perspective, that one should be self-reliant and not depend on government handouts to live. In the opinion of the source, the
