Ever since, for the human being, making a choice is a difficult challenge. The economic theory of the XVIII and XIX centuries considers man as a rational individual. His decision is the output of the elaboration of the input (information) that he collects. ( Photo- GORDON BROWN, NICK CLEGG, DAVID CAMERON, )
We have to wait for the “New Economy” theory of the XX century, for the introduction of irrational elements in the human decision making process. In contemporary political debate, many surveys are underlining the crucial factors for choosing the vote will not be just immigration, jobs, education, health and tax but also other aspects that come out of our subconscious signals. Nikki Owen, a specialist in coaching, says that “we are emotional beings” and that “every moment, our subconscious mind receives over two million bits of information”. Furthermore, Sheena Iyengar, Professor of Business at Columbia Business School and author of The Art Of Choosing says: “When voters can’t distinguish between the parties, they vote with their gut, and use a variety of factors to make that decision , some very arbitrary. When people have choices that they can’t differentiate between they are more likely to choose randomly”.The purpose of our special report is to contribute impartial electoral information. We aspire to fill the gap of our rational desire for knowledge. Our dream is to restore the passion for politics in Aristotele’s sense as “interest for the polis” that seems to disappear from the heart of the citizen in all industrialized countries.Firstly, we will analize what the job of Prime Minister means with some historical hints for a better understanding of this role.Secondly, we will analize the main points of the parties’ manifestos.Thirdly, we will show how electoral law functions in UK, and finally, we will provide and examine some statistical data collected from our survey.
