Tories go back in time

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

The Tories essentially want to return to the leader selection process they had before Iain Duncan Smith was elected. Actually, it’s not a bad idea, and the original changes were a bit silly. But the changes do give less point to being a party member, so expect to see lots of concessions to get the party at large on-side. And expect some political flack for going back in time – even though it seems a good thing for our political leaders to recognise, admit, and correct their mistakes.
