and his ‘Young England’ movement. By the twentieth century, however, this tradition had largely died out, though there were occasional exceptions: Ian McLeod and Edward Boyle, for example.

Beer, Modern British Politics (Faber and Faber, 1965); and, on the Party in the twentieth century, see J. Seldon and S.

the failure of these organisational efforts tells us much about the nature and contours of British governance. Early attempts to capture this approach is my chapter in Seldon and Ball’s, The Conservative Century (Taylor 1994 , 499–543) and my article in the Labour History Review ( 1992 , 21–28). My approach has been influenced strongly by Keith Middlemas’s synoptic exploration of British

The Conservative Party and electoral failure
Richard Hayton

1997, why was it so slow to adapt, reposition itself and rebuild its support? This becomes all the more puzzling when the adaptive record of the party is considered. It is the most successful electoral organisation in democratic European history, having governed (either independently or in coalition) for 91 of the 111 years of the ‘long Conservative century’ between 1886 and 1997 (Seldon and Snowdon, 2001: 27). Such was its dominance the party became known, and regarded itself, as ‘the natural party of government’. Yet, having suffered a crushing defeat in 1997, the
