Abstract

Explores the changing geography of Westminster election voting in Britain since 1979, with particular respect to the north-south divide in national politics and society. Chapters subject the voting behaviour in 1979, 1983 and 1987 to more rigorous statistical testing, underlining the real contribution of the "geographical' perspective, and the central role of the north-south divide. Exploration of possible reasons behind these findings suggests a strong link between voting and voters' perceptions of their own, and national, material well-being, past, present and future. -T.Hoare
