dc.description.abstractA feature of English local political folk-lore is the belief among national political parties, that Independent councillors are Conservatives in disguise. Yet, little evidence is given to support this idea because little is known about these councillors’ beliefs and assumptions or how they distinguish themselves from the party politics they eschew. In this paper we address the question: Are all Independent councillors really Conservatives? The paper answers the question by reporting the finings of research conducted among Independent and Conservative councillors in England to explore the complex, multi-dimensional and fluid world that is Independent politics.en
