Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter discusses the policy mood and the moving centre. It is part of a collection whose topics include Gordon Brown's premiership, David Cameron's leadership of a resurgent Conservative party, the effects of the financial crisis and the parliamentary expenses scandal, and the drama of the UK's first ever televised leaders' debates. The book analyses the impact of these factors and others on the election and looks ahead to assess how the coalition government-and British politics-will adapt in the new political and economic environment.
