ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the political conditions in Great Britain. According to an announcement made by British Prime Minister James Callaghan, there will be no British general election during the first part of October. But it is presumed that the Prime Minister may have made a fatal strategic error in so doing.

The revelation that the Royal Air Force is down to 74 operational fighter planes, way under strength also affected the Labor Party.
