  • Henry Pelling


Although political parties possess a certain organic character, it is not easy to analyse their structure in precise biological terms, or to predict their processes of adaptation or decay. The Labour Party, although unique in many ways, is no exception in this respect. Many of the generalisations that may be attempted to describe its effective working and development soon come to need qualification; and forecasts of its future behaviour must be tentative in character.
