Resigned acceptance was the consequence, rather than a growth of militancy. As we have seen, the political parties advocating extreme solutions to the country’s ills failed to recruit significant numbers of supporters. Nevertheless, when so many people were failing to share in the general rise in prosperity, their dependability in the event of a call to bear the sacrifices of another total war was a question that in 1939 was exercising the minds of the political elites; for, as the First World War had shown, divided nations were losers.

So it came about that “protection”, “subsidies” and even “nationalization” increasingly entered the discourse of the ruling establishment and took concrete form in the pre-war decade. In agriculture, the Agricultural Marketing Act (1931) opened the way for the setting up of Marketing Boards for milk, potatoes, hops and bacon that guaranteed minimum prices for producers, and in 1932 acreage subsidies were begun for oats, wheat, barley and sugar beet. Government intervention in industry also came through the exercise of fiscal and legislative power.

A year later in 1936, in the campaign for the general election, the Conservative manifesto reaffirmed that “The League of Nations would remain…the keystone of British foreign policy”. It acknowledged the need for a measure of rearmament to fill gaps in the national defence; but the Conservative leader Stanley Baldwin felt it necessary to address the International Peace Society on 31 October and say, “I give you my word that there will be no great armaments”. These were the words of a shrewd politician judging accurately the public mood.
