The British State, 1945-1995
The battleground between Churchill and Attlee, between "individual liberty and state domination", anticipated the political debate of today. Yet there are large differences between what the Conservatives promised and what they delivered 30 years later, as well as significant changes in the notions of welfare and social justice that have guided the Labour Party over the years. Daniel Johnson of The Times reflects on the blurring of the distinctions between the parties and attempts to discover the character of current political philosophy. With contributions from
Frank Field MP; Lord
Hailsham; Oliver Letwin , prospective Conservative candidate for West Dorset; historian Conrad Russell , the Liberal Democrats' spokesman on social security in the House of Lords; and political economist Lord Skidelsky. Producer Louise Greenberg
