It’s been 25 whole years since the election in which John Major’s Conservative Party won a surprise majority against Neil Kinnock’s Labour, disproving many polls.

The BBC Parliament channel will be showing the 1992 election all day to commemorate the anniversary, as a treat for politicos.
Many political figures familiar today were, at the time of showing, young parliamentarians.

Lots of people felt very old, remembering watching the election all those years ago.
Watching #Election92 for the second time. This time I don't have special permission to stay up on a school night ….

Switched on #Election92 coverage. Remember watching it as a 13 year old absolutely convinced we were heading for a Labour govt.
