Abstract:

Looking back at past Conservative governments can help Labour to understand what it is that they do to keep themselves in power. Those lessons can be boiled down to Ten Commandments. The Cameron government is actually breaking many of these – something which should give those opposed to it some hope that it can be voted out at the next election. On the other hand, the increasing electoral salience of leadership and the probability of a return to economic growth, may still make this difficult, unless, that is, Labour ups its game.
