An analysis of many of the single-issue protest campaigns that have hit the news headlines in recent years; campaigns which helped give currency to the idea that party-based democracy was being challenged by single-issue politics. Campaigns covered include: Swampy and friends trying to stop the building of the second runway at Manchester Airport; the middle-aged residents of Brightlingsea physically stopping trucks transporting cattle to slaughter abroad; the Snowdrop campaign, calling for legislation to ban private ownership of firearms; and the Countryside Rally, lobbying Parliament to kill an anti-bloodsports Bill.
