Green Conservatism

leave a comment »

Conservative leaders are meant to be ogres. They lock up criminals, protect borders, force welfare scroungers to work and small children to read. They thunder against the nation’s enemies and spend money on guided missile destroyers and maximum security prisons. Conservatives are tough and strong. They are not cute and cuddly… unless, that is, they are David Cameron.

Cameron, the British Conservative Party’s new leader, is setting up policy groups on social justice and quality of life. He says that wealth creation isn’t the be-all-and-end-all, he believes in society and he’s concerned about the environment. That’s why he’s holding discussions with Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and other environmental groups. He might be a Conservative, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t believe in society or care about climate change, clean air, and small furry animals.
