General Election 2017: Reactions

Description
Written by Professor Catherine Needham, Professor David Dunn, Dr Matt Cole, Dr Siddhartha Bandyopadhyay. "Having sought an increased majority, the Conservatives now find themselves in a minority, though still in government, and within days of the start of Brexit negotiations. The electoral process which the British public did not seek has produced an outcome few politicians wanted. It will be another test of the difficult dialogue between the political class and their frustrated electorate."

May's Mid-Campaign Wobble or Something More Serious?

Description
Written by Professor David Cutts, Professor of Political Science. "The result could be a double-whammy blow to the Conservatives: losses to the Liberal Democrats and Labour hanging on to more marginal seats than was widely expected. So it will be interesting to see whether the consequences of May's social care u-turn will be reflected not only in increasing support for Labour but also for the Liberal Democrats."

'Strong and Stable' versus 'for the Many not the Few'

Description
Written by Professor David Cutts, Professor of Political Science. "If May succeeds in winning vast numbers of working class voters over it will be because of her and her alone not because of a wholehearted conversion towards the 'Conservative' brand. As such, if the worst case election scenario for Labour occurs, any talk of their long term future must bear in mind that their popularity could turn around pretty quickly if trust, credibility and competence are restored."
