Archive : UK General Election

The United Kingdom general election of 1987 was held on 11 June 1987 and was the third consecutive victory for the Conservative Party under the leadership of Margaret Thatcher. She was the first Prime Minister since the 2nd Earl of Liverpool to lead a party to three successive election victories, a record subsequently equalled by Tony Blair.

The Conservatives were re-elected with a reduced majority of 102 seats.
