2 The New Hope for Britain

Subject

Labour Party, 1983 manifesto

Description

The Labour Party’s 1983 manifesto was heavily influenced by the party’s leftwing. It called for unilateral nuclear disarmament, higher taxes, withdrawal from the European Economic Community and greater state control of the economy. The leftwing believed these policies had great appeal but the party slumped to its worst defeat since 1935.
