Reclaiming the Centre Ground
As a result of ever increasing political polarisation, a gap has opened up in the British centre-ground. With the formation of new centrist groups like Change UK (formerly The Independent Group) somewhat echoing the Group of Four, and the continued presence of the Liberal Democrats, we ask: what does the future of the British centre-ground look like? Will this be a radical transformation of British politics or yet another failed attempt to break the two-party system?
- Sir Vince Cable MP : MP for Twickenham and Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Britain's largest pro-European and centrist party, Sir Vince recently said the Liberal Democrats are open to cooperating with Change UK
- Ryan Wain : Wain is the CEO of United for Change, a centrist political movement founded in August 2018 which seeks to "promote long-term solutions to the UK's problems"
- Chuka Umanna MP: Umunna is a British Change UK politician serving as the Member of Parliament for Streatham since 2010. He was a member of the Labour Party until 2019, when he resigned to form The Independent Group along with six other MPs.
