Background InformationThe Crusade for World Government was closely associated in Britain with the MP Henry Usborne. In 1947, a plan for global elections to a world constituent assembly, which would meet in Geneva in 1950 and draft a world charter, gained the support of fifty-eight British MPs, fifty-seven of them Labour. The issue occasionally returned to Parliament in subsequent years, and Clement Attlee became a supporter in his retirement, but essentially it was an idea bypassed by the quickening pace of European integration in the post-war decades.
