In 2015 –
This year –
The last question isn’t like for like, but the thrust of the other answers shows that not a great deal has changed, for our panel, since the pre-Brexit, Cameron Government days of six years ago.
The composition of the panel itself has changed since then…but the first answer, on a directly-elected Chairman, has actually stood still: another tribute, as we like to say here, to the consistency of the panel.
All in all, a significant minority of activists, if the survey is right, are pretty content with their lot – somewhere between one in five and one in three, depending on the question.
A majority would like more of a say. But there is no substantial push that we’re aware of to obtain it, in a party perhaps more centralised than at any other time since the dawn of the democratic age – especially when it comes to candidate selection.
