The Whigs are back
"Only 146 years after disbanding, the Whigs have re-formed and will field candidates at the next election. They even have a Twitter account, @whigsuk, which was tweeting the 21st-century party’s values last week. These include that Britain’s “best days are ahead of us”, support for social justice, democracy and the NHS. The original Whigs were radical and progressive, but since their decline the Liberals and Labour filled this gap. There is a need for a new, centrist party in British politics, but I am not sure the Whigs meet this challenge."
