Andrew Gamble is emeritus professor of politics at Sheffield University, and author of many books on Marxist theory and studies of the Conservative party. He talked with Martin Thomas from Solidarity.
Q. There are at least three relatively longstanding strands of division in the Conservative Party now in play:
• US orientation vs European orientation
• English-nationalist orientation vs UK orientation
• Ideological orientation vs traditional pragmatic small-c conservative orientation.
What roles do you think they are playing?
