Chartism was a powerful community force which staged protests across the West Riding and attracted much support, especially from the dispossessed, the disenfranchised and Irish immigrants. The Home Office led the state's response. It used new resources - railways, press and the electric telegraph - and mobilised coercion - army and police forces.In 1842 and in following years Chartist unrest was suppressed largely because the Home Office managed to take control. Arrests were made and extreme measures adopted to secure the region from further violence, effectively driving the movement into decline. The state had too much coercive power in reserve and easily checked the protests. As Malcolm Chase has written, 'history failed to turn' and then mass support for the Chartists declined
