THE CHANGING BRITISH VOTER: TAKING BACK CONTROL?

Saturday 19 October: 1:45pm - 2:45pm

Faculty of History, Room 3, West Road, CB3 9EF

What light can historians throw on the way Britain now votes?
This year’s European Elections saw the ‘major parties’, Labour and Conservative, win only 25 per cent of the vote; by contrast, the ‘minor parties’ won 75 per cent – with the upstart Brexit Party topping the poll with 32 per cent.
Will a populist wave bring the Brexit Party to power? Are we seeing the end of the Conservatives? Where should Labour go from here?
This talk from Justin Jackson (Cambridge) and Francesca Granelli (KCL) find answers in the changing way Britain has voted over the last seventy years and offers three perspectives – behavioural, socio-economic, and political – that provide a compelling picture of how the British voter has changed in a few generations.
