Can Britain’s Conservative Party Reinvent Itself for a New Generation of Voters?

Friday, June 15, 2018

In this week’s Trend Lines podcast, WPR’s editor-in-chief, Judah Grunstein, and managing editor, Frederick Deknatel, discuss the outcome and implications of this week’s summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. For the Report, Aleks Eror talks with WPR’s senior editor, Robbie Corey-Boulet, about the British Conservative Party’s efforts over the past 15 years to project a more moderate image, and why they haven’t gained much traction within the party or among voters.
