About the Event

2017 saw the Conservatives seek a landslide coalition of their southern heartlands & Brexit-supporting Labour areas in the North, Midlands & Wales. The result: the loss of seats like Canterbury & Stockton together with David Cameron’s majority. Is this strategy doomed or can an effective campaign deliver?

About the Series

What do we want from the next Prime Minister? New ideas for the UK’s future are plentiful. Brexit has increased the number of potential futures for our country. But as yet a new national consensus – a governing philosophy with a broad basis of support and an exciting policy agenda to match – has proved elusive.

Policy Exchange believes that such a consensus is within our grasp and is the only basis for a process of national renewal. This event forms part of a series that will offer answers at this pivotal moment from the leading experts in each field to that key question: what we do want from the next Prime Minister? We will also be publishing, in stages, a complete set of policy ideas on all these issues and more.
