Fellow of University College, Oxford
Is Britain's two-party political system Inviolable? Or has a third party a chance --either of achieving power or at least of helping to oust a government it opposes? These are some of the questions with which Maurice Shock grapples in his talk, which arises from the recently published book by Sir Ivor Jennings , Party Politics, Volume 1: Appeal to the People.
