Abstract

The Labor Party has been in opposition for five months. In that short time, there have been two striking changes in the political situation. First, the trend to the Tories-which had been going on steadily since early 1947-has been halted and reversed. Second, what is loosely described as "Bevanism" has been growing steadily, not only in the local parties but also in the much less flexible Parliamentary party. Both changes spring from the same root causes-the continuing drift to war and the economic crisis caused by rearmament.
