Basically 'the left' go to 'Care/harm' and set up camp, while conservatives draw on 'Loyalty/betrayal', 'Authority/subversion', 'Sanctity/degradation'.
With Britain being rigidly class-based, few 'poor' people believe in what Pratchett referred to as 'Vote yourself rich. However there is plenty of energy to invest in your assorted granfalloons.
Having just done the Moral Foundations Questionnaire (don't seem to be able to include the picture of the result) I note that at least at that one conservatives are more even then liberals in that they care about the things liberals care about (harm/care, fairness/reciprocity (including issues of rights)) almost as much as they care about the conservative issues (ingroup/loyalty, authority/respect, and purity/sanctity) while liberals care much more about care&fairness then loyalty&authority and even less about purity. Not sure if this is an effect of calibration of the scale.
