Policy Press

The chapter outlines and critiques various factions within the Conservative Party and the stresses, strains and opportunities that Brexit presented to them. The chapter reflects upon the demise of One Nationism a more liberal and pro-European form of Conservatism and contrasts it with the Eurosceptic ‘Brexiteers’ within the party some closely aligned with hyperglobalism, a more militant form of neoliberalism, that constitutes an attempt by core countries like the USA and Britain to re-orientate their economic models in order to maintain an advantage over old and emerging competitors and retain their hegemony. Key personalities involved in the discussion are: Theresa May, Boris Johnson, Dominic Grieve and Ken Clarke among others. The chapter considers whether the Conservatives have transformed into a radical right form of populism.

Keywords:   One Nation, Neoliberal, Euroscepticism, Hyperglobalism, Brexiteers
