  4. Lord John Russell was born in London into one of the leading Whig families; his father became 6th Duke of Bedford in 1802.

    Russell, a younger son in a grand Whig aristocratic family, was educated to follow the political principles of William Pitt the Younger's great rival, Charles James Fox (1749-1806). Born prematurely, Russell remained small and puny, but read and wrote voraciously – mainly history and literature. He was an MP almost continuously from 1813, aged just 21, until he accepted a peerage in 1861. In the 1820s he actively urged Parliamentary Reform and was one of the ‘Committee of Four’ chosen to draw up what became the 1832 Great Reform Act when the Whigs finally ended decades of opposition and formed a government in 1830. He became a leading influence on the Whigs’ policy as they developed into a ‘Liberal party’ in the 1830s. He advocated co-operation with the Irish leader Daniel O’Connell and conciliation of Catholics through Irish Church and institutional reform – a policy which divided and radicalised the party in 1834-5. As Home Secretary after 1835 he reformed the criminal law, and as...

    Russell became Prime Minister when Sir Robert Peel’sTory government fell apart in 1846. However, he lacked a sound parliamentary majority before and after the 1847 election. He hoped for the support of Peel and his followers, as well as of Radical MPs. It was not easy to get either consistently, because the economic depression and political tensions of 1847-9 at home and revolutions abroad made for volatile politics in Britain. Russell’s government acquired a reputation for weakness, especially in economic policy. He had to compromise significantly on the social and Irish reform that he wanted to be his legacy, though Acts of 1847 and 1850 imposed a limit on working hours in factories, state grants to schools were significantly increased in 1847, and the 1848 Public Health Act forced localities to tackle sewerage and drainage. His hopes of further conciliating the Irish Catholics were destroyed by the Irish Famine, the pressures from within Britain to adopt a hard-headed attitude to...

    Russell was shy, vain and uninterested in cultivating the rapidly expanding media. This impression of aloofness and elitism added to the criticisms of his premiership. He could not compete with the popularity that his Foreign Secretary, Lord Palmerston, won for his vigorous, assertive and fashionably liberal foreign policy. Soon after Russell sacked Palmerston in late 1851, the latter joined the opposition and defeated Russell’s government by leading the attack on its Militia Bill, which he condemned as an inefficient response to the threat of aggression by France following Louis Napoleon’s coup d’etat in December 1851. Palmerston and Russell then jockeyed for position through the 1850s. Russell, who now advocated further parliamentary reform, retained the loyalty of many Liberal and Radical MPs, but Palmerston had broader support in the Commons. Russell served as Foreign Secretary in Palmerston’s second government, and became Prime Minister again on Palmerston's death in 1865. Dete...
