ABSTRACT
This article reports on the state of practical politics as discussed in this year's Labour Party Conference at Margate, England. The Harold Wilson report claimed that the Labour Party machine was still at the penny-farthing stage in a jet age, and attributed the loss of 35 marginal seats--enough to produce the Conservative majority, primarily to bad organization. The crucial weakness Wilson's report revealed was the shortage of those voluntary workers on whom the Labour Party organization must always depend. Most observers at Margate felt that, though the Labour Party is now moving toward recovery, there will be no dramatic progress until the new leadership is settled. But the prospects here are cloudier than ever.
