Abstract

When Aneurin Bevan, Harold Wilson, and John Freeman resigned from the British Labor government in April, 1951, it was fashionable in some circles here and abroad to question their motives and impugn their integrity. Perhaps the most bitter criticism came from their own Labor Party colleagues in Parliament. The Bevanites, said Sir Hartley Shawcross, in a class-conscious sneer, are "extreme left-wingers…some with outlooks soured and warped by disappointment of personal ambitions, some highbrows educated beyond capacity."
