Episode 16: When two tribes go to war…
with Tim Bale13th January 2019
How divided is Britain? A case of when two tribes go to war? Or is it time to give peace a chance? In Parliament, the Tories and Labour look incredibly divided on where to go next – with splits crossing traditional party lines. But this isn’t the case with their voters, let alone their members. Tories are more pro Leave than ever, while for Labour voters the opposite holds true. When it comes to party members the trend is even starker. Our guest in this podcast is political scientist Tim Bale from Queen Mary University. He’s led a lot of the research in this area, finding out what Britain’s political party members really think. As Theresa May’s deal looks set to be defeated in Parliament this week we pick Tim’s brains on what on earth will happen next.
