About our Conservative Party news

Latest news on the Conservative Party, the current governing political party in the UK, also known as the Tory Party or simply the Conservatives, providing comprehensive coverage of local election results, campaign strategies, leadership updates, and policy shifts as the UK prepares for the upcoming general election.

The Conservative Party, formed in 1834, is often said to sit on the centre-right of the political spectrum and has been in government on many occasions. As of May 2024, the party is led by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who has been in office since October 2022, following the short-lived premiership of Liz Truss, who succeeded Boris Johnson after he was forced to stand down in 2022 following a party rebellion.

The recent local election results have provided insight into the public's sentiment towards the Conservative Party. While the party managed to maintain control in some key councils, it also suffered losses in several areas, with the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats making significant gains. These results have prompted the Conservative Party to re-evaluate its campaign strategies and policy priorities as it prepares for the upcoming general election, focusing on key issues such as the economy, immigration, and post-Brexit relations.

The Conservatives have been in power since the 2010 election, initially through a coalition agreement with the Liberal Democrats, ending 13 years of Labour governing. The party won the 2019 general election with an overall majority under Boris Johnson's leadership. Throughout its history, the Conservative Party has generally adopted liberal economic policies favouring free markets, including deregulation, privatisation, and marketisation, since the 1980s, although historically it advocated for protectionism. The party is British unionist, opposing a united Ireland, Scottish and Welsh independence, and has been critical of devolution.

Under Conservative governments, the United Kingdom held a referendum on whether to leave the European Union and subsequently left the EU. As the UK faces various challenges, including the ongoing impact of Brexit and the need for economic recovery, staying informed about the Conservative Party's actions, promises, and performance is crucial for voters seeking to make informed decisions in the upcoming general election.
