As in Germany, theory remained divorced from practice, while Labour in principle could perhaps be better described as a democratic socialist party as it saw the elimination of capitalism as necessary to achieve its goal of ‘common ownership’. Post-1918 witnessed that division within the progressive tradition of British political life, with the Liberals marginalized and their electoral base narrowing in subsequent elections thereafter.
