The Tories are supposed to be a right wing party. 100% of the polling should convey that.

The fact that only 60% of those polled think that the Tories are right wing………..

don't forget, they can solve all their problems by lurching further to the right as "they haven’t been right wing enough"
Makes my point for me, cheers

This, apparently, after another 11 quit in Burnley a few months ago.
Mostly around Gaza it seems. Although worth keeping in perspective Labour have over 6,000 councillors.

The graph from the link shows that people think that the Conservatives are right of centre, it’s the varying extent of how right that has changed..

From the link…



And as for the people who thought that the Conservatives are "fairly left wing" or "left of centre", that probably says more about them* than the Conservatives…



*UKIP’ers or Reform Party "members", who think anyone to the left of Richard Tice is a Commie

Thanks for the clarification Hugh.

I think that historically the Tories would be categorised by most people as "centre-right" i.e. leaning to the right of the political spectrum but closer to the centre. It is only in recent years that they have moved solidly into the "right-wing" and, it seems, intend to keep going.

If they do that, then as Labour found with Corbyn, they will find themselves in opposition.
