New Labour at the Centre: Constructing Political Space

Andrew Hindmoor


This book examines how New Labour repositioned itself at the ‘centre-ground’. It argues that policy changes alone cannot account for the change in spatial position. New Labour did not simply move to the centre, but constructed it. It persuaded the media, voters and other parties that it had moved to centre, and constructed its policies as centrist.

Keywords: New Labour, political centre, political parties
