Focus on Political Parties
What is a political party? Do parties still fulfil their functions? What is the British party system?
How are they organised? How do the Conservatives and Labour compare? What is a party faction? What are the roles of party members? What is an electoral professional party? Do party members still matter? How are parliamentary candidates selected?
What is political ideology? What is Liberalism? What is the 'left' in British politics? What is the 'right' in British politics?
What are consensus and adversarial politics? Has there been political consensus in Britain? Was there a consensus after Margaret Thatcher? Where did the 2010 coalition have consensus? Where did the 2010 coalition not have consensus?
