After returning to government in 2010, the Conservatives went on to win three consecutive election victories thereafter, increasing their vote share on each occasion. The Labour Party, meanwhile, has struggled in opposition and suffered a devastating defeat in the 2019 General Election. This timely and thought-provoking book explores the reasons for the Conservative Party’s long term electoral success and Labour’s difficulties in winning and holding power.
