Title A fading British coal town might vote Conservative for the first time in 86 years Media name/outlet Washington Post Media type Web Country/Territory United States Date 6/06/17 Description “It’s like the Tories are kicking down the door of a house that has been rotting for some time. It needs one big shove and it will fall over,” said Rob Ford, a political analyst at the University of Manchester.
Like Trump, who has abandoned some Republican orthodoxies — such as free trade — in the name of protecting American workers, May has also steered Conservatives toward more interventionist policies, Ford said.
“There are areas of the country that were turned off by the free-market approach that are finding something to like about the Tory party now,” he said.
