British political parties
In the textbook we sketch in the historical background of each party and also look at their main beliefs. We point out that in recent years the Labour Party has been moving towards the ‘centre’ in British politics, and that in some ways it is very close to the Conservative Party which traditionally is its great rival. However, these two parties continue to maintain a vigorous political debate and they often use fairly strong language (usually polite!) to attack each other. The Liberal Democrats, too, join in the political debate, and are eager to be noticed by as many people as possible since they feel they have a real chance of winning more seats in future elections.
