Sked, Alan (1978) The liberal tradition and the Lib-Lab Pact. West European politics, 1 (2). pp. 193-207. ISSN 1743-9655
This article examines the 'Lib-Lab Pact' in the light of Liberal Party history and is written from a viewpoint sympathetic to Liberal Party aims. It sketches the Liberal view that the party's decline was the result more of leadership failure than of failure to respond to social and economic change and poses the question whether the present Liberal leadership is not in danger of continuing a tradition of strategic error. Finally, it suggests that if Liberals are to make headway politically they must adopt a more ruthless attitude to politics.
