Abstract

Will the Prime Minister’s decision to call an early election work in her favour? Ben Worthy looks at the data from previous ‘takeover’ prime ministers. He concludes that an election victory will free Theresa May from the short fate of other takeovers but won’t, in itself, help her secure a long or more stable premiership.
