Abstract

In Little Platoons: How A Revived One Nation Can Empower England’s Forgotten Towns and Redraw The Political Map, David Skelton argues that a renewed ‘One Nation’ Toryism can rejuvenate ‘forgotten’ or ‘left-behind’ towns such as Consett in Country Durham. This book signals the Conservative electoral interest in forgotten towns, but falls far short of a credible and serious programme for their revival, writes John Tomaney. Little Platoons: How A Revived One Nation Can Empower England’s Forgotten Towns and Redraw The Political Map. David Skelton. Biteback. 2019.
