THE PARTIES

far more intolerant than some of the official chiefs of the party, and were strongly opposed to all moderate and conciliatory language."(1) A regular party purge was carried out.(2) The inevitable consequence followed. The group of Radicals within the Parliamentary party took to acting independently. But more seriously the party was in fact taking the first steps towards its own disintegration. It was failing to realise that it was not catching the imagination of the working-class whose votes had been a growing proportion of the total since 1884. They, on the contrary, were coming to regard the Liberal Parry as quite as little concerned with their interests as the Tories. Both parties being devoted, despite their hollow protestations, to the selfish interests of capitalism, labour began thereupon to look to the formation of its own group of representatives. The failure of the Liberal organisation to retain the Radicals laid the foundation of its later decay. A great party must find room within its ranks for the future as well as the past; for a great party is a movement that grows and must change with growth. Unless it conforms to this rule of life a progressive party is even more certainly doomed to die than is a conservative party. Yet the Conservatives were in the long run more successful than the Whigs in adapting themselves to the necessities of change, for the struggle that should have been settled in the last days of Gladstone had yet to be fought out, when the whole reason for it had gone, in the days of the Whigs, Asquith and Grey and the Radical Lloyd George. The unadaptability of doctrinaire liberalism has left its dismembered body scattered, like some prehistoric mammal, over the history of fifty years with one brilliant epilogue from 1906 to 1914 Of a resuscitated Whigdom.
