An earlier version of the article was presented to the 2007 annual meeting of the American Political Science Association, Chicago, to the 2007 conference of the Elections, Public Opinion and Parties specialist group of the United Kingdom Political Studies Association, Bristol, and to the 2007 General Conference of the European Consortium for Political Research, Pisa. We are very grateful for comments made by participants at those events. Suggestions of the journal's editor and four anonymous referees were particularly helpful for improvement of the article. We thank the British Academy for research support through its small grant, The Policy Priorities of UK Governments: A Content Analysis of King's and Queen's Speeches, 1945–2005, and the project coders for their diligent work. Will Jennings thanks the British Academy for additional research support through the Research Fellowship, Vox Pop? The Regulation of Government by Public Opinion. All omissions, errors, and interpretations are of course our own.
