ABSTRACT
This article focuses on practical politics in Great Britain. The British Labour Party, having just touched earth again at its yearly conference in Scarborough, England is perhaps more vigorous just now than at any other time these last 12 months. The Gallup Polls of the last few months have been showing small majorities in favor of the party. It seems quite impossible to find anybody who really believes that Labour Party would win an election if it came within the next few months. Party delegates, having had very few outlets throughout the year, expect to let themselves go at the party conference and they always do. This was Aneurin Bevan's position in excelsis. While he remained on the Party Executive he had to keep his differences to himself in public.
