  • The United Kingdom general election of 1987 was held on 11 June 1987, to elect 650 members to the British House of Commons. The election was the third consecutive election victory for the Conservative Party under the leadership of Margaret Thatcher, who became the first Prime Minister since the 2nd Earl of Liverpool in 1820 to lead a party into three successive election victories. The Conservatives ran a campaign focusing on lower taxes, a strong economy and strong defence. They also emphasised that unemployment had fallen below 3 million for the first time since 1981, and inflation was standing at 4%, its lowest level for some 20 years. The tabloid media also had strong support for the Conservatives, particularly The Sun, which ran anti-Labour articles with headlines such as: Why I'm backing Kinnock, by Stalin. The Labour Party, led by Neil Kinnock, was slowly moving towards a more centrist policy platform. The main aim of the Labour party was, arguably, simply to re-establish themselves as the main progressive centre-left alternative to the Conservatives, after the rise of the SDP forced Labour onto the defence. Indeed, the Labour party succeeded in doing so with this general election. The Alliance between the Social Democratic Party and the Liberal Party was renewed but co-leaders David Owen and David Steel could not agree whether to support either major party in the event of a hung parliament. The Conservatives were returned to government, having suffered a net loss of only 21 seats, leaving them with 376 MPs. Labour succeeded in resisting challenge by the SDP-Liberal Alliance to replace them as the main opposition, and managed to increase their vote share in Scotland, Wales and Northern England. However, Labour still returned only 229 MPs to Westminster. The election was a disappointment for the SDP-Liberal Alliance, who saw their vote share fall and suffered a net loss of one seat as well as former SDP leader Roy Jenkins losing his seat. This led to the two parties eventually merging completely to become the Liberal Democrats. In Northern Ireland, the main unionist parties maintained their alliance in opposition to the Anglo-Irish Agreement, however the Ulster Unionists lost two seats to the Social Democratic and Labour Party. The election night was covered live on the BBC, and presented by David Dimbleby, Peter Snow, and Robin Day. It was also broadcast on ITV and presented by Sir Alastair Burnet, Peter Sissons and Alastair Stewart. (en)

  • 1987年6月11日舉行的英國大選,選出650名英國下議院議員。這次選舉是由保守黨的撒切爾夫人贏得連續三次大選勝利,是自1820年羅伯特·詹金遜,第二代利物浦伯爵以來連續第三次選舉的勝利,撒切爾夫人亦成為英國20世紀在位最久的首相。 保守黨在競選中側重於降低稅率,一個強大的經濟和國防政策。當時失業率已降至1981年以來的首次低於3萬,而通脹率在4%左右,站在大約20年的最低水平。小報媒體也有大力支持保守黨,特別是英國太陽報,一直發表反勞工的文章。 由金諾克領導的工黨,慢慢走向更中間派的政策平台。工黨這次只為了重新建立自己作為中間偏左的主要進步路線。而社會民主黨和自由黨之間聯盟合作領導人大衛·歐文和戴維·斯蒂爾不能同意是否支持懸峙國會的事件上出現分歧。 這次保守黨政府減少21個席位,取得376席,但繼續蟬聯多數黨地位。社民-自由聯盟並在蘇格蘭,威爾士和英格蘭北部增加不少選票。工黨只取得229席,三連敗。社民-自由聯盟取得22席,前社民黨領袖羅伊·詹金斯失去他的議席。這導致了雙方最終合併成為完全的英國自由民主黨。在北愛爾蘭,主要工會各方保持他們的聯盟,反對盎格魯-愛爾蘭協議,然而Ulster工會會員失去了兩個席位,兩席原屬社會民主黨和工黨。 (zh)
