Let's try not to get too partisan here.

They are usually 6 weeks.

Four weeks is about enough of listening for politicians for me...

Not sure what the correct answer is but the Conservatives have been in campaign mode since the end of July.

At least they're not as long as in the US where you get the primaries months and months beforehand and then several months of campaigning by the two candidates.

Not just the Conservatives, but probably the Lib Dems and SNP too I would say.

Election campaigns in the US are essentially 2 years long, 6 weeks is nothing in comparison. (Of course there's usually some pseudo campaigning a bit before the 6 week period here too but still).
