Quick Reference

An organization founded by Sir Drummond Wolf and Lord Randolph Churchill in 1883, devoted to the cause of Tory democracy. The League used the emblem of Disraeli's favourite flower to focus on his concept of Conservatism. This involved defence of traditional features of British life, but also a wish to broaden support for Conservatism by showing its capacity to improve living and working conditions for the masses.
