Abstract

The vast majority of Labour MPs would personally prefer to stay in the Single Market - but the party appears to be committed to leaving it, chiefly on the basis that voters want to curb immigration. Rob Johns (University of Essex) highlights three concepts from voting research - the median voter, issue ownership, and valence - that offer the Labour party a rationale for embracing a softer Brexit.
