Abstract

“The problem is, I just don’t likeanyof them”, was my dad’s emphatic response when I asked him about the election. I don’t think he’s unusual in his antipathy to the current leadership of the UK’s political parties. The present Conservative leader, Boris Johnson, is widely regarded as an inveterate liar and thoroughly untrustworthy. Jeremy Corbyn –the leader of the Labour Party –is seen as a throwback to 1970s-style socialism, certainly by many older voters. Meanwhile, Jo Swinson, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, is seen as a political opportunist with few principles.
