Abstract

In June 1983, the headline total for unemployment was two million more than when the Conservatives were elected in May 1979. Yet one opinion poll at the time of the 1983 election showed that the electorate believed the Conservatives to have a more convincing policy to tackle unemployment than Labour. This was the true measure of the depths to which the Labour Party had sunk.
