Theresa May’s op-ed in the Observer is a recommended read. She’s right to pitch towards the political centre ground – ‘one-nation conservatism‘ has a proud tradition going back to Disraeli. Alarmingly, the Labour Party has lurched towards the Far-Left – ‘New Labour’ under Jeremy Corbyn is totally different to ‘Old Labour’, built on compassionare socialism. To win the next general election, the Conservatives must deliver radical policies that will appeal to the political centrists. Since the crash of 2008 too many working and middle class families have suffered under austerity.
This is an interesting article in the Guardian but it completely misses the point. In Russia, politics and big business are closely woven together. Thoughts?
