With the contemporary political terrain less favorable to the Conservatives, Philip Lynch asks whether "Conservative Britain" is no more. He examines how new forms of governance, questions of identity, European integration, economic change and social trends have eroded Conservative hegemony. The Conservative Party's troubled spell in Opposition since 1997 and the lethargy of conservative ideology are also assessed.
