Wikipedia:Index of United Kingdom political parties meta attributes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This article is designed to record in a convenient form, the meta/shortnames and meta/colors attributed to political groups which have contested elections in the UK.

Colours[edit]

Where the same colour has been allocated to more than one party this indicates that the groups are related to one another (either in organisational or political terms) and are believed to have either contested elections in different periods or different geographical areas.

The use of Tory and Whig up to 1832 and Conservative and Liberal from 1832, is a convention. It disguises a much more complex picture. Some politicians used the new terms in the 1830s but many did not for another generation.
