If governments frequently accepted defeat on minor questions without resignation, even such powerful Parliamentary figures as Palmerston, Gladstone, Disraeli were overthrown in turn by their failure to carry with them a majority of the Commons on a specific issue of major importance. This was mainly due to the existence of several rival groups in addition to the two chief parties. Peel resigned after defeat on the Coercion Bill in 1846, Russell when the Opposition passed a Franchise motion against the Government in 1851 and again in 1852 when the Militia Bill was rejected. The Derby-Disraeli administration resigned in the same year when its budget was thrown out. Russell resigned after unsuccessfully resisting the motion for a committee of enquiry on the Crimean War in 1855, and Palmerston on being defeated over the Conspiracy Bill in 1858. In the following year Disraeli resigned on an amendment to the Address being carried. The Russell-Gladstone Government was defeated on its Reform Bill in 1866 and resigned. Gladstone's administration failed to pass its budget in 1885, and resigned without waiting to appeal to the country over which there would be delay because the necessary Redistribution Bill had not yet been passed. Clearly in such circumstances the individual Member was a politically significant person, and his position was likely to be a coveted one.
The theory of the Constitution was clear. The Member was a representative of his inferiors; he was not the delegate of his superiors. Sovereignty resided in Parliament and not, as it did according to French revolutionary theory, in the nation. The situation still appeared to be governed by the principles asserted by Burke in his famous address to the electors of Bristol: "Your representative owes you not his
