Power, and Interests of the British Establishment

Power, and Interests of the British Establishment

Those members of the establishment who had leading positions in the state departments were the political elite. As well as jobs which were direct gains from the territorial possessions, or the empire, which Britain acquires, the British political elite’s main concern was the economic well-being and privileges of the whole of the establishment (or the imperial based class). This is due to the fact that the establishment, as we have seen in here, comprises of those with a similar background and often this social cohesion develops into kinship. Therefore it was the economic and social interest of the establishment that the political elite had to protect.
