Reflecting on the Labor government of Harold Wilson between 1964 and 1970, this concise analysischronicles the Labor Party from its early days up to the early 1960s, including a 1972 postscript. Demonstrating how empirical and flexible the Labor Party has been about certain issues, this reference also touches on how it is one of the most dogmatic political parties in regards to the parliamentary system. Commenting onwhy its leaders have always made devotion to this system their fixed point of reference, this political overview proves that this has always been the conditioning factor of their political behavior, as they consistently reject any kind of political action which has fallen outside the framework and conventions of Parliament. Stating that there is no distinction to be made between Labor s political and industrial leaders, this study illustrates the party as it is now and has always beenone of modest social reform in a capitalist system within whose confines it is ever more firmly and by now irrevocably rooted."
