The State of the Parties - some AS support!

Party ideology is not as fixed as it once was, and Ed Miliband faces the same problem that David Cameron faced in trying to determine how to establish a distinctive, ideologically coherent message that doesn't veer too far away from the middle-ground consensus that still decides elections.

A couple of useful support links for AS students are here:

1. From the tutor2u website, Mike McCartney gives an overview of where the parties are at the moment, using a recent sweep of relevant stories.

2. The Today programme's Norman Smith has a fascinating report on the problem for Miliband as he tries to recover lost constituencies like Gravesend, which still seem to be firmly in 'Blair country'.
