Aneurin Bevan (1897–1960), British Labour politician. Speech, May 24, 1945, Blackpool. Quoted in Daily Herald (London, May 25, 1945).
Bevan's speech occurred on the day when Churchill announced the formation of a Conservative "caretaker" government in the wake of V.E. Day and the dissolution of the wartime coalition. The Conservatives were to be ejected from office two months later following a landslide victory for the Labour Party.
