Thus they are typical of periods of growing pauperisation, depression and mass unemployment, falling real wages, and a sharp polarisation of classes. It is at such times, when a direct clash of economic interests occurs between clear cut productive classes against a background of material scarcity, that economic issues are the main determinants of political attitudes.

Butler, Chancellor in the subsequent Conservative government) parties had different priorities: Labour seeking to extend the services of the welfare state and the boundaries of the public sector, the Conservatives placing more emphasis on private consumption rather than public expenditure and the 'social wage'. In 8 The Resurgence of Ideology specific fields of policy differences were very marked. The Conservatives, for example, in the sphere of education supported a meritocratic grammar-school system in pursuit of equality of opportunity, whereas the Labour Party when in power from 1964 sought to secure comprehensive, non-selective education as a road to a much more substantive view of equality.
