List Of MPs Elected In The United Kingdom General Election, 1987
A GENERAL OFFICER is an officer of high rank in the army , and in some nations' air forces or marines . The term "general" is used in two ways: as the generic title for all grades of general officer and as a specific rank. It originates in the 16th century , as a shortening of captain general , which rank was taken from Middle French capitaine général. The adjective general had been affixed to officer designations since the late medieval period to indicate relative superiority or an extended jurisdiction. Today, the title of "General" is known in some countries as a four-star rank . However different countries use different systems of stars for senior ranks. It has a NATO code of OF-9 and is the highest rank currently in use in a number of armies

Landslide Victory
A LANDSLIDE VICTORY is an electoral victory in a political system, when one candidate or party receives an overwhelming majority of the votes or seats in the elected body, thus all but utterly eliminating the opponents. The winning party has reached more voters than usual, and a landslide victory is often seen in hindsight as a turning point in people's views on political matters. Part of the reason for a landslide victory is sometimes a bandwagon effect , as a significant number of people may decide to vote for the party which is in the lead in the pre-election opinion polls, regardless of its politics. The term is borrowed from geology, where a landslide takes almost everything with it on its way
