    And there was a very generous side to this driven man. Just before she appointed Gladstone, Victoria wrote to Sir Henry Ponsonby that she would 'sooner abdicate than send for or have anything to do with that half-mad fire-brand who would soon ruin everything and be a dictator'. This was only the beginning of the struggle between militant political prisoner Sylvia Pankhurst and Home Secretary Gladstone. Gladstone called an election but found himself attacked from all directions; the Conservatives won and he resigned. And it is still Mr.
