‘This gives me goosebumps’. 1 Leadership in the extreme right takes many forms. One of the traditional notions of leadership in the extreme right is that epitomised by Mosley, the charismatic leader, someone able to inspire a large crowd through the use of powerful rhetoric. Yet in many ways a figure like Colin Jordan was also an archetypal British fascist leader. Hardly charismatic in the same way

As well as themes seen already in Orissa, like community, reciprocal exchange, reputation, conflict management, leadership, elections, outsiders, and migration, in Bailey’s hands the text also carried indications of Manchester. For instance it replicated the mentor/student balance, ‘regional’ generalizations, 6 the focus on social change, and notion of conflict and

the delegation. You had to talk to them, but it was very hard to make any progress in those meetings. Quite frankly, you don’t make progress with big groups. In my view of negotiations any group, whether it be trade unions, at European level, farming groups, employment groups, if they come in numbers they don’t trust their leadership and they tend not to be good negotiators. So, straight away, when

3 Party organization and leadership In addition to being influenced by ideology and policies, the electoral fortunes of the parties of the extreme right are also likely to be affected by the parties’ internal organization and leadership, and by the consequences of these internal dynamics. In fact, a general consensus in the literature on right-wing extremist parties suggests that ‘one of the most important determinants of success is party organization’ (Betz, 1998a: 9). In the light of this, this chapter turns its attention to examining the internal structure of

5 A poverty of leadership: Nursing older people in British hospitals, 1945–80 Jane Brooks Introduction In February 2013, Robert Francis QC published the report of the public inquiry into the poor care, target-driven culture and patient neglect at the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Trust in the midlands of England. Key to the findings and crucial for the recommendations were that there was poor leadership and that the Trust Board had as its raison d’être cost-saving and the meeting of government targets, rather than successful patient outcomes.

driven to impose reforms. While there are some obvious similarities, Blair framed his leadership within one of the established parties, whereas Macron came from outside the existing party establishment. The specialist of the French right Gilles Richard sees Macron as a contemporary version of the liberal, Orleanist right, an adept of political and economic liberalisation (Richard, 2017 ). Rather more crudely, during the 2017 campaign Macron was painted as the representative of international finance by Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Mélenchon, in a not so strange

Introduction When Umberto Bossi resigned from the party leadership on 5 April 2012, he was in his twenty-eighth consecutive year at the top of an organisation he founded in 1984 as Lega Lombarda and then rebranded as Lega Nord a few years later, after a merger with other regionalist movements (see Chapter 1 ). The traumatic departure of the old “ capo ” (chief), as he was known within the party, marked the end of an era. No other Italian leader had managed to stay in a similar position in any other party for such an

, seeing that potentially as evidence once again of the Polish people being marginalised by outside forces. Chapter 4 focused on the member parties of the European Conservatives and Reformists as one of the important means of better understanding the group and its policies. This chapter follows on from that in a similar vein, but this time looking at the leadership structures and most important personalities active in ECR and its wider political networks. It is vital to consider issues related to leadership and organisation

1 David Cameron’s leadership and party renewal Gillian Peele Writing on the tenth anniversary of David Cameron’s victory in the Conservative leadership election, Paul Goodman, the editor of the influential online site ConservativeHome, noted that on some measures Cameron’s decade in the leadership made him the second most successful Conservative leader in the last hundred years (ConservativeHome, 6 December 2015). Yet, as Goodman’s article also un­­ derlined, there is a sense in which Cameron’s leadership remains puzzling and problematic: for many observers his

George W. Bush’s worldview was based upon clear-cut principles, instinctive, non-reflective decision making, a strong moralistic bent, and a propensity for risk-taking based upon a belief in the history-making potential of strong leadership. His administrative style, though, was delegatory and based upon maintaining comity. He preferred reading people to reading policy
