80 years since the 1st Labour Government elected

The Herald reports:

A dinner to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the election of the first ever Government will bring together a potentially explosive mix of people as some of the Rogernomes return to their original home for some reminiscing.

The dinner at Parliament is organised by current MP Stuart Nash, the grandson of the Prime Minister in the Second Labour Government: Sir Walter Nash.

It is to mark the anniversary of the election of the first Labour Government in 1935, under then Prime Minister Michael Joseph Savage.

You might not agree with all their policies but at least they were a positive reforming Government.

To mark the 80 years since, I’ve compiled this chart to show how they have done in the 26 elections since.

A long way down from 1935!
