In the United Kingdom, the Liberal Party evolved from the Whig Party. The majority of members went on to merge with the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to form the Liberal Democrats in 1988. A minority of members maintained the Liberal Party name and formed a new party because they felt that the Liberal Democrats had lost the ideals of the original party.
