Guido Fawkes posts on an interview with Peter Oborne, broadcast on Radio 4, which is well worth a listen.
Cameron describes himself as 'A One Nation Relatively Progressive Conservative' and the conversation contains a great deal about philosphies, in particular these words, initially paraphrasing Disraeli:
"In a progressive country change is constant.............Conservatives should think about how change is constant in a progressive country but you have to make sure change is the right change, keeping the best things strong and changing and amending what needs to be changed. Understanding your history, traditions and customs and try and achieve your goals using their strengths rather than believing in some sort of Utopia that can be written on a blank sheet of paper."
Perhaps I should not be too critical of David Cameron - after all, he is my MP and I shall need his help with my problems viz-a-viz housing associations - but I have to ask how is the right change correct when it results in a belief that it is right to hand over the governance of your country to an unelected and unaccountable body located in another country? If, as he states, it is his wish to remain a member of the European Union, then this wish must be a belief in that self-same sort of Utopia, aka the 'EU dream', which was in fact written on blank sheets of paper?
Just a thought....................
