Novara Media / Downstream: Why The Tories Keep Winning w/ Sam Earle

Listen on

Episode notes

Excluding Tony Blair’s back-to-back victories, the Conservative Party has governed the UK for all but 18 of the last 100 years. While the media often presents elections as Labour’s to lose, the truth is that Britain is a one-party state that occasionally lets the other side have a go in the interest of fairness. With the Hartlepool by-election just a month away, Ash Sarkar is joined by journalist Samuel Earle to discuss how the Conservative Party became the most successful political party in the Western world – and what it might take for the left to topple them.
