Abstract

Harold Wilson’s 1963 ‘White Heat’ speech still has impact today because it challenged some of the very fundamentals of British socialism. It demonstrated that renewal was not only possible but also necessary, and so represented something of a watershed in Labour’s evolution. Put simply, old agendas revolving around heavy industry and trade union rights verses a new economy that embraced the realities of an increasingly interconnected global economy were brought forward by the speech.
