Description
By 1951 virtually all of the British Labor Party's evangelical fervor had been spent and the Conservatives were brought back for a long period of consolidation. This change in mood coincided with the ascent to the throne of young Elizabeth, who reinforced the British tradition of stability. There were brief ministries under the aged Churchill and his protege Anthony Eden, and then the leadership passed to Harold MacMillan. His was a remarkable incumbency, whose prosperity was in sharp contrast to the necessary austerity of the first decade of the post-war period. MacMillan was obliged to retire in 1963 because of ill-health and soon thereafter, in 1964, the electorate gave its favor once again to the Labor Party and Harold Wilson. But the long Tory incumbency had strengthened morale, and Britain was counted an affluent society.
