David Cameron’s early weeks as Prime Minister are a pleasing vindication for those of us who voted for him as leader in 2005. Like many, I saw in him a quiet, unstated pragmatism which served my party well and now is turning it’s attention to our country.
Witness his comments this week about Raol Moat and his upcoming visit to the United States which shows a man who has a common sense approach to people and life and a strong sense of pride in our country but realism about our place in the world and the state of our society. What a refreshing change after thirteen years of hubris, interntaional grandstanding and self indulegent jumping on tragic band wagons. If this is the new politics, I like it.
