Last quote by John Curtice

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which John Curtice is associated, including EU and UK. Most recently, John Curtice has been quoted saying: “The Tories have recaptured most of the traditional middle-class rural part of the country where they used to be strong. The real disappointment for them is the Labour revival. They would have been hoping to be the unchallenged champions of unionism in Scotland but Labour is back in business.” in the article The minute that Sturgeon talked about another referendum, that was it’.

John Curtice quotes

May 27 2017

In some campaigns, nothing happens in terms of big movements.feedback

May 27 2017

The Corbynista claim that they could get people who don't normally vote to say they will vote Labour may have a germ of truth in it. But there are a lot of question marks. Whether they really will turn out is the $64,000 question.feedback

May 22 2017 - Labour Party

It is disproportionately younger people [who have applied to appear on the register], but you have to realise that it's disproportionately younger people who are most likely to be missed off the register in the first place.feedback

May 11 2017 - Brexit

In particular it has disrupted Labour ever since the referendum, and it has historically disrupted the Conservatives. If the polls putting the Conservatives on as much as 48 percent are right, then there's nothing anyone can do about it. Even if everybody voted tactically, May's lead would be unassailable. If the lead narrows, we would begin to see that tactical voting could make quite a difference. If the lead is below 10 percentage points then it starts to affect the outcome.feedback

May 11 2017 - Brexit

If May ends up with a majority of only 20-30 [seats in the House of Commons – compared to her current 17] then her whole project has failed.feedback

May 05 2017

Ukip "has lost everything they've been trying to defend.feedback

May 04 2017 - Liberty Party of Canada

Tactical voting is already priced into the market. You have voters in Cornwall voting for Liberal Democrats for years who, if they lived in Liverpool, they would vote Labour. There was also tactical voting by Conservative supporters in Lib Dem seats. If the Tories really are at 47%, all tactical voting is going to do is reduce their share. Tactical voting tends to work against parties that are already down in the polls, it is not going to change the broad picture.feedback

May 03 2017 - British elections 2017

Pro-Brexit Ukip supporters are transferring their allegiance to Theresa May’s Conservatives. Even a small swing to the Tories is likely to boost their majority. Since Theresa May called the snap election, there has been much discussion about encouraging those who are unhappy with her vision of Brexit to vote tactically to defeat those Tory (and occasionally Labour) MPs who back the prime minister. Voters, it has been argued, should form their own “progressive alliance”, voting for whichever anti-hard Brexit candidate seems best placed locally to defeat their pro-Brexit MP.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - Scottish independence

It will be very, very surprising if Labour retains control of any council in Scotland.feedback

Apr 19 2017

A lot of the Labour seats, are incredibly safe, there are perhaps 17 marginal seats with a majority less than 1,000.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Labour Party

Theresa May wins seats from the Labour Party. Why? Because Labour is at sixes and sevens, Jeremy Corbyn is not a very popular leader and the party is divided over Brexit. Whereas Mrs May seems to be at least reasonably popular. Some of the leadership research recently has found she's not loved but respected.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Scottish independence

That makes it all the important that Scotland is protected from a Tory Party which now sees the chance of grabbing control of government for many years to come and moving the UK further to the right – forcing through a hard Brexit and imposing deeper cuts in the process.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Scottish independence

It is far from clear that concerns about Brexit are likely to change the minds of many voters about the merits or otherwise of independence. So long, of course, as the UK government succeeds in delivering both free trade and immigration control.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Scottish independence

We have a standoff, and there's not going to be any immediate resolution.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Conservative and Unionist Party

Many Remain voters would like to see an end to the less popular parts of Britain's current membership of the EU, while many Leave voters would like to retain the seemingly more desirable parts, such as free trade, cheap mobile phone calls, and clean beaches.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Brexit

This is perhaps typical of the pick-and-mix attitude to the EU that has characterised much of Britain's relationship with the institution during its 44 years of membership so far.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Brexit

Many a Remain voter would like to see the end of freedom of movement...the priority that the UK government appears to place on this issue is not necessarily at odds with the views of those who voted Remain. For the EU, free trade and freedom of movement are meant to go together. For British voters they do not, especially for Conservative voters. Meeting their expectations for Brexit could thus prove difficult...Mrs May could well face a hard task at home keeping voters on-side.feedback

Mar 21 2017

It is a combination that potentially presents the UK government with a considerable challenge.feedback

Mar 12 2017 - Scottish independence

The broader truth is that, in a country that is still so divided on the merits of independence, it is difficult for either side to claim clear majority support in any aspect of the surrounding debate – and that includes the debate on holding a second ballot.feedback

Feb 24 2017

Meanwhile UKIP are now facing the possibility that the rewards of the fact that the majority of the country voted to leave may go to the Conservative Party.feedback

Feb 24 2017

We're left with an opposition that is losing votes in by-election after by-election ... all very different parts of England but the message to Labour is the same.feedback

Jan 19 2017

Although a majority of those who voted against independence voted to remain in the EU, they're not necessarily committed to the EU to the same extent as they are to the UK.feedback

Jan 17 2017

The key challenge facing the government, as the prime minister herself seemed to recognize, is whether the EU can be persuaded to strike a deal on free trade on anything like the terms and conditions that she has in mind.feedback

Dec 02 2016

What this by-election shows is that it's a warning to all political parties as to potentially how disruptive this Brexit process is going to be for the regular practice of party politics.feedback

Jun 23 2016

Few 'remain' strongholds are doing better than expected. There are far more places where 'leave' are doing better than expected.feedback

Jun 23 2016

It may be possible that the experts are going to have egg on their face later on tonight. It may be the first sign that the 'remain' side are not going to do as well as those early polls suggested.feedback

Jun 23 2016

There's many a voter out there who agrees with Remain on the economy and Leave on immigration, and the implications of risk are not yet kicking in for Remain. Higher turnout is not necessarily good for Remain.feedback

Jun 16 2016

On immigration there is a problem, and there is a solution (presented by the Leave camp). On the economy, there is a warning but no optimism. And that is potentially a strategic weakness.feedback
