History's Most is a podcast that delves into interesting, under-reported and controversial topics in history and applies superlatives to them. We deep dive headfirst into a variety of topics, from history's most guilty man, to the most disastrous voyage, to complicated wars and confusing politicians.

In this episode, we are joined by Stuart Ball, Emeritus Professor of Modern History at Leicester University, for a discussion about Britain's 1931 budget crisis, and the formation of the National Government.

We take a look at the political situation in Britain in the years before, the people involved in the crisis, the critical moments during it, and the fascinating years afterward; including the creation of a National Government, and the landslide victory of that National Government in the October general election.

Thanks so much to Stuart for coming on the show!
