The Liberal and Nationalist Revival
The eleven years from 1959 to 1970 constituted a decade of lost opportunity for the Liberal and Nationalist Parties. On separate occasions, each of the three smaller Parties seemed set to achieve a major political breakthrough — the Liberals at Orpington in March 1962, Plaid Cymru with the triumph of Gwynfor Evans at Carmarthen in July 1966 and the Scottish National Party when it swept to victory in the hitherto Socialist citadel of Hamilton in November 1967.
