Post-war British public opinion: is there a political centre?

Sebastian Dellepiane Avellaneda, J Bartle, J Stimson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The chapter shows that British post-war public opinion is pretty much one-dimensional, and largely corresponds to what most people think of as ‘left-right’ issues. Some issues are seen as existing outside the traditional ‘left-right’ framework - for example, attitudes to the monarchy or about Europe. However, many of these are being incorporated into the left-right framework.
