‘The volunteers’ farewell: closing rituals, genteel ironies’ recounts the activities and perspectives of volunteers, Government officials, the Church, strikers, and various media at the end of the General Strike. The Liberal press, the King, and the Church took a neutral position and called for a binding up of the wounds. Most newspapers, however, blamed one side or the other, depending upon their political perspective. The strike ended with the Labour Party and the Trades Union Congress more isolated than ever from Prime Minister Baldwin's Conservative Government, the mine owners, and the majority of public opinion.
