Quick Reference

Founded in June 1881, but did not add the ‘Social’ to its name until 1884. By then it had also become socialist, in a Marxist sense, under the influence of H. M. Hyndman. It was never a mass party, but it did exert considerable influence, and assisted in the birth of the Labour Party in 1900.
