Hey guys,

Can someone help me understand this question?

Are political parties set in stone on the political spectrum?

Thanks

With the caveat that it was a long time ago that I studied politics, this seems to be asking you to discuss whether a political party remains static in its beliefs/position over time. It is quite obvious that this is not the case. Take a look at the Labour Party policies under Blair, Milliband, Corbyn and Starmer and you can see that the leader / controlling group shifts the party further left or right along the political spectrum. The same is true of the Conservative Party, look at the place where Johnson has it on the political spectrum and compare that with Cameron and it is clear that altough both are Conservative governments they are at different points on the spectrum.

You might also wish to consider whether there are fundamental (set in stone) philosophical principles that defines a political party. Also look into non English political parties, for example could the SNP abandon independence for Scotland and survives as a party. What about non UK parties. The northern League in Italy for example, also how do personal dictators, like Castro in Cuba or Putin in Russia. Do they have a set in stone set of beliefs.
This would enable you to discuss whether the opinions of the leadership defines a political party of some sort of philosophical prickles that are immutable
