There is little doubt in our mind that this was the most exciting General Election in our living memory. In fact, nothing else seemed to be discussed at the office for weeks before it. Despite this, however, the drama didn’t stop on election day. The Conservative majority, the subsequent EU referendum, the failure of the opinion polls, the Labour wipeout in southern England, the rise of the SNP and the arguments about electoral reform have kept the drama alive and kicking well in to 2016. We couldn’t be happier!
What now for British politics? This workshop aims to unpick the short term and long term consequences for Britain and for modern politics. Will there be another Scottish referendum, a question that has taken on new energy after the decision to leave the EU? What will happen to Britain’s relationship with Europe after a referendum that was a central part of the 2015 campaign? What does the Labour leadership contest tell us about the political “centre” in British politics?
