These checks on the dominance of the governing party have largely either been removed or at least substantially attenuated since 1979. Increasingly after 1979 the leadership of the Conservative Party has effectively controlled not only Parliament and the Cabinet, but appointments to an increasing number of non-elected public bodies, such as health authorities, hospital trusts, training and enterprise councils, development corporations and agencies, and a host of others, controlling together more than a third of total public spending.

Partly because of the fragmentation of opposition, the trend towards a multi-party Britain has paradoxically produced oneparty government, and, more contentiously, perhaps even a one-party state. Such a claim might seem exaggerated. After all, there have been previous periods of Conservative dominance. The party’s hold on office since 1979 has not persisted much longer than that from 1951 until 1964, and there are obvious similarities between the two periods. Yet there are also some obvious differences.
