Politics from 1948

The following is taken from an article by Sir Richard Acland in The Listener, from January 15, 1948 entitled ‘Morality and British Politics’. Note how things were then and how they are now.

“The first step in democratic service is to join a political party. You join as a rank and file member of a local branch. The more diligently you serve your party and your cause, the more likely is it that they will ask you, for example, to become branch secretary. If you serve with self-sacrifice and show wise political judgement, you thereby increase the chance of you being made a local councillor. And as such you cannot but be aware of the fact that faithful service might lead someone to nominate you as candidate for the House of Commons.”
