hi, I'm currently researching for a politics essay at the moment: "to what extent is the modern conservative party influenced by one nation principles".

I was simply wondering what the difference, if any, is between traditional conservatism and one nation conservatism? What are the aspects of the two? Any help would be much appreciated, really struggling with this one! Thanks!

One Nation and Traditional conservatism are very similar.

TBH I've done AS politics and I think the question is supposed to be a comparison between Thatcherism and One Nationism rather than Traditional Conservatism.

Modern conservatism is further to the right than the one national conservatives. It pushed for the rights of the working classes and spoke of a responsibility for those at the top to help those at the bottom, though this was only out of self-preservation, to maintain the social order. There was pretty much a one nation influence in the tory party up until Thatcher.


It doesn't have much of an influence on modern tory policy, the tory party are all thatcherites now, and thatcherism and one nation conservatism are quite different.

Thanks for shedding some light on that, it really helped
