THE CABINET

ever attained Cabinet office in a Liberal or Liberal-Conservative government. For that they have had to wait for the two Labour governments which shew quite different types of personnel, and one or two have since been retained in the Coalition governments of the 'thirties.
Comparison between the Cabinet in modern England and in other countries reveals two points of contrast. It is drawn from a far more restricted social field in Britain than in any other democratic country. This is true whether the country considered is a constitutional monarchy like Sweden or Belgium, a republic like France or the United States, or even a British dominion. Differences of social class enter more into British politics than in any of these countries. The class division is thus revealed as politically more important in England. That party divisions correspond to it, and that consequently it is only when a Labour government is in office that the British Cabinet can be compared socially with those of other democracies, only serves to stress this point. although it indicates the tendency to move in their direction.
But secondly, if comparison is made with more authoritarian governments-whether it be of the first Napoleon or of the modern dictator that we are thinking-the most striking contrast lies in age. Youth seems to be barred from the British Cabinet of to-day, unless we are to regard a man of fifty as a youth. Yet Hitler and Mussolini were both well below that age when they achieved the supreme control. The British premier is generally about sixty when he first attains that rank. Mr. Chamberlain was nearer seventy than sixty when he first became Prime Minister. For a lesser Cabinet minister to be about forty is quite exceptional.
