    The Conservative Party, which dominated British politics

    The Conservative Party, which dominated British politics in the 20th century, is a shadow of its former self.............There is now only one conservative Member of Parliament from Scotland and none from Wales. Large cities such as Liverpool elect no conservatives.

    A) Moreover, the selection of parliamentary candidates is in the
    hands of small groups with extreme views
    B) Elsewhere in Europe right-wing parties continue to thrive
    C) Thatcher governed Britain for 11 years and was generally known
    as the "iron lady"
    D) Even when a conservative candidate is elected it is usually by a
    narrow margin
    E) Their role in the European Parliament at this time inspired neither
    respect nor confidence


    Do you think B is the correct answer?

    I think D, key is B.

    I vote D as well. B doesn't fit very well at that place in the sentence, it reads like an afterthought. It could work if placed at the end.
