This introductory chapter explores the conception of the political centre. New Labour secured election victories in 1997 and 2001 by presenting itself as the party at the centre. It is argued that the party did not move to the centre but rather, constructed it. It identifies four specific but differences that follow from seeing the political centre as constructed.
