 Labour Party (UK) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Labour Party's origins lie in the late 19th century, when it became apparent that there was an increasing need for a political party to represent the interests and needs of the large working-class population.
Labour's chances of electoral success were further damaged by the fact that the Thatcher government's popularity was on the rise after successfully guiding the country to victory in the Falklands War.
During this time the Labour Party emphasised the abandonment of its links to high taxation and old style nationalisation, which aimed to show that the party was moving away from the left wing of the political spectrum and moving towards the centre.

The Russian Social Democratic Labour Party, or RSDLP (Росси́йская Социа́л-Демократи́ческая Рабо́чая Па́ртия = РСДРП) was a revolutionary socialist Russian political party formed in 1898 in Minsk to unite the various revolutionary organisations into one party.
Confusingly, the Mensheviks were actually the larger faction however the names Menshevik and Bolshevik were taken from a vote held at the 1903 party congress for the editorial board of the party journal, Isrka with the Bolsheviks being the majority and the Mensheviks being the minority.
These were the names used by the factions for the rest of the party congress which debated Lenin's proposals on party organisation and these are the names retained after the split at the 1903 congress even though Lenin's faction ended up in the minority and remained smaller than the Mensheviks until the Russian Revolution.

It was Lenin's position on democratic centralism and on restricting party membership that caused the split.

This would help lead to the inevitable split in the party over stagism: with some arguing that reformism is necessary before revolution, and by the same logic, that captialism is necessary before socialism.
In 1903 the Second Congress of the party met in Belgium and England with this dispute comming to the forefront.
After the congress the party split into the Bolshinstvo (Bolshevik -- majority party) and Menshinstvo (Menshevik -- minority party), with the Mensheviks believing in Stagism/Reformism, while the Bolsheviks demanded outright revolution.
