New Tory Leader

Filed under: Current Affairs — ealing @ 4:18 pm

So it’s Cameron as everybody thought it would be.

I’m not, and probably never will be, a Tory voter, but I would dearly love to see some effective Opposition.

From the BBC site describing his acceptance speech:

He set out core challenges for his leadership: creating a full-bodied economic policy which went beyond just tax; giving freedom to those on the frontline in public services; national and international security; and ensuring social justice by strengthening the voluntary sector.

My immediate hopes are that “international security” means trying to distance ourselves from US policy, and “strengthening the voluntary sector” does not imply weakening public services.

Missing from his list of core challenges is a mention of a new drug policy. I’d be impressed if he could get a consensus for a saner approach to classification.
