There is a very strange focus on the Conservative party in this article. Is it really true that the announcement was greeted by applause by Conservative members of the House of Commons and not by all MPs? Further, the phrasing, "Others outside the government were quick to react," is also very odd. Why did they "react" and not simply applaud, as did the members of the Conservative party? The focus on the the Conservative party simply strikes me as very forced in an article about a historical discovery.

Did they ever find anything that had a 'name' of the ship on it? I'm interested in The Terror. Since both ships underwent repairs before the final expedition, what absolute proof is there that it is the Erebus? Bell found, etc.? Thank you.

The discovery of the Erebus is close to its planned route. By staying in the artic the first winter they had a early start. That was when the mystery began.
