Party Systems

This interesting piece in the FT by Vernon Bogdanor is looking at the regional variations in voting behaviour that are likely to be exhibited in 2015. Particularly Bogdanor is suggesting that there are different party systems operating in different parts of the UK.
If you have a question in Unit 1 asking you to discuss the party system being able to suggest that there are now multiple regional systems in the UK is a more sophisticated point than simply discussing 2, 2 1/2 or multiparty at a national level.

This piece is worth reading to provide you with information for your paragraph on regional party systems.
