Elections, Parties

The hollow centre

Many political scientists believe that the key to electoral success is to position yourself in the ideological centre because most voters are naturally inclined to position themselves in a moderate position.

The New Statesman questions whether or not all of our political parties have failed to follow the electorate to the centre of the ideological spectrum. This is certainly an interesting article when it comes to¬†explaining low turnouts and party ideology but Ed Miliband’s damascene conversion to One Nationism might suggest that the tide is beginning to turn already.
