Abstract

Casting an eye over recent events is a salutary experience. As always, though there’s plenty to analyse, there’s little engender optimism.

Next Thursday the country will undergo its first major electoral test since December 2019. Local elections in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as the Northern Ireland Assembly elections, are viewed as a bellwether for the fortunes of the major political parties. In particular, results next week will be scrutinised to judge the ability of Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to survive in his current position.
