As a result of ever increasing political polarisation, a gap has opened up in the British centreground. 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”.
