This chapter looks at the impact of 1997, given a General Election in May 2003. It reviews the successes and the failures of continental Europe, before turning to New Labour. It is revealed that social policy is more centralist and state-led under New Labour, reinforcing British exceptionalism. The chapter also introduces the concept of ‘progressive dilemma’.

Keywords:   General Election, continental Europe, New Labour, British exceptionalism, social policy, progressive dilemma
