Today, PLMR have published our latest research report: “2024: The Year of the Long Campaign”. 

In this PLMR Insights paper, our expert consultants delve into unique polling data, scrutinise the main challenges facing the political parties and analyse developments within key sectors expected across 2024.

From political analysis to policy shifts and emerging trends, PLMR’s insights paper paints a picture of the year ahead, tackling pressing questions and examining electoral battles including the East of England and in the West Midlands. Some of the key questions asked include: Does Starmer present a credible alternative; what’s in store for the Conservatives in 2024; and will the smaller parties have an impact on the election?

This paper and polling are part of PLMR’s Insight series which also includes regular private roundtables with Government Ministers, shadow ministers, MPs and journalists. Our recent programme has included sessions with the Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to the US for Regional Trade and Investment – Sir Conor Burns MP; Deputy Political Editor at the Financial Times – Jim Pickard; Shadow Minister for Housing and Planning – Matthew Pennycook MP; Shadow Minister for Roads – Bill Esterson MP; and the SNP Westminster Spokesperson for the Economy – Drew Hendry MP.
