okay i phrased that a bit wrong but i think it's obvious what i'm trying to ask. i'm trying to write my personal statement and want to mention something about how i found all three main parties to be very similar at the time of the election, but now i'm questioning the extent to which this was true as obviously i don't want to say something that the admissions tutor is gonna be like, "whaaat?" about lol. if it was/is true, how should i phrase this? oh help

Waffle on about how certain elements of Politics interest you, so just say something like ... "And as Politics in the UK becomes ever more Liberalised and centralized, the concensus politics becomes ever more a problem as it can often lead to disillusionment amongst the electorate" etc etc.

To win elections parties must court the centre territory. This means that despite having some far rights in the conservative party who oppose gay marriage and some far lefts in the labour party who want a return of communism both parties have very similar policies and agendas. And like in the 1950s it is more about the character of the politicians rather than their policies.
