Where the public sits on a left-right spectrum is of particular interest as we approach the 2015 General Election. Using all the available survey data, including the latest findings from NatCen’s British Social Attitudes, this short report establishes where the “political centre” currently lies in British politics. It shows that the British public has oscillated left and right over the past 50 years but has shifted to the left since 2010 and asks what the political implications of these changing attitudes might be.
