Abstract

Many studies of British electoral geography suggest that class is the major influence on voting patterns, with the neighbourhood effect presented as an 'explanation' for variations around the class cleavage. Recently Dunleavy has criticised this model. Analyses undertaken in the light of his critique find clear patterns of inter-constituency variation in voting that are consistent with the neighbourhood effect.
