Phillip Blond parts company with Cameron

In an article in the Guardian newspaper, "Red Tory" intellectual Phillip Blond argues that David Cameron has abandoned his radical vision of bottom-up conservatism. "The government is now focused on a purely negative agenda of deficit reduction, and unable to offer a positive vision of the future.... A new conservatism has been strangled at birth; a failure to rethink the party's economic offer means that old economics have killed new politics." Blond picks up with approval the phrase currently being used to re-brand the Labour Party: "One Nation". Watch this space.
