Abstract

Recent analyses of British voting behaviour between the 1960s and 1980s have uncovered a trend towards growing regional polarisation. The 1992 election saw the beginnings of a reversal of that trend, and the geography of the vote, while still pronounced, was less marked than before. However, analysis of the constituency flow of the vote between 1979 and 1992 reveals considerable underlying stability in the geography of British elections. -Authors
