The British General Election of 2019 with Rob Ford and Paula Surridge

Posted on 21 December 2021 by Ian Montagu

As we enter the festive period and to mark two years since the 2019 UK general election, Sir John Curtice and Ian Montagu are joined by guests Rob Ford and Paula Surridge – two of the authors of the newly-published authoritative account of that ballot, ‘The British General Election of 2019’ – to discuss the impact of Brexit on the campaigning strategies of the major parties, how debates around Britain’s future relationship with the EU affected the outcome of the election, and whether the new political map that emerged as a result of the vote looks likely to last.

 The British General Election of 2019, by Robert Ford, Tim Bale, Will Jennings and Paula Surridge is published by Palgrave Macmillan.
