The shape of electoral politics in Britain has been changing over the past decade, with those with ‘left-wing’ economic values becoming fragmented by their positions on other issues. This article considers how the ‘left’ in British electoral politics has been changing, by considering the values, attitudes and socio-economic positions of those within the electorate who are positioned on the ‘left’ as defined by their economic core values. It draws on data from British Election Study face-to-face surveys between 1992 and 2017 in order to look at how the ‘left’ has evolved over the last 25 years.
