In the British general election, Conservatives win 316 seats, which
forms a majority in partnership (though not a formal coalition)
with a group of 78 dissident Liberal Unionists, opposed to their
party's support of Irish Home Rule. The main Liberal party gain 191
seats, and the Irish Nationalists win 85. As a result, after three
weeks of negotiations, Lord Salisbury forms a Conservative
ministry, that remains in government until August 1892.
