Political frontier divides Great Britain.

R. J. Johnston

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Presents a geographical analysis of the 1979 election results. In previous elections the 'swing' to the winning party has been fairly uniform throughout the country but this election showed marked regional differences with Scotland and major urban areas of London, Birmingham and Manchester showing a swing to Labour while everywhere else showed a swing in the other direction. Further insight is provided by maps and graphs which show Liberal decline and the effects of using a form of proportional representation.-E.Turner
