A Conservative (1918-22), Independent (1922-4) and Labour MP (1924, 1926-31), Mosley was eventually expelled from the Labour Party after a concerted attempt to win the Party round to a planned expansionist economic policy. In 1931 he founded the New Party, succeeded in 1932 by the British Union of Fascists which became influenced by Nazism. He and his wife were interned 1940-3.
