Hard on the heels of the end of World War II in the European theater, the Labour party won a decisive victory and Winston Churchill was voted out of office as Prime Minister. The victory of the Labour party, which advocated on behalf of the lower and working classes in England, ushered in the beginning of a welfare state with nationalized medicine and an end of the class system of advancement and prestige, mostly through the building of new universities (which were of course of low prestige) and educational opportunities expanded to all classes. Jimmy Porter in Look Back in Anger represents the political point of view of the Labour party, the political point of view that made changes--limited and somewhat unsuccessful though they were--a possibility and a reality.
