Callum Newton: A lesson to the Conservatives from 1945. Build the housing that the nation needs.

Conservative Home

Senior Researcher Callum Newton emphasises the need to build more homes across the UK if the Conservatives are to win the next election. He writes:

“The 1945 general election offers a warning to Conservatives. Running a presidential-style campaign is never without risks, and voters want an overarching vision from prospective Prime Ministers. Housing provides a solution on both fronts. First, delivering a clear housing strategy and reintroducing national targets gives aspirational voters a reason to support Conservatives again. Second, a strong vision will deny Labour’s ability to monopolise the housing debate – a crucial error in 1945 – and further strengthen the ‘Sunak Effect’ among key voter groups.”
