Popular Understandings of Politics in Britain, 1937-2015


Contemporary concern with anti-politics

By UoSAnti-Politics |

Last week’s YouGov poll and official launch of the project stimulated discussion about the impact of public disengagement with formal politics in the present.

The poll’s results were included in The Independent’s daily catch-up, whilst Nick Cohen suggested in The Spectator that our early research indicates the difficulty of the task that faces the winner of next year’s general election. This week, Alberto Nardelli discussed our findings in The Guardian in relation to the rise of new political parties in contemporary democracies.

Whilst political disenchantment may not be new, the rise of anti-politics is assuming greater significance in contemporary discussions of formal politics.
