For Liberty and Livelihood

I can appreciate the misgivings many have with Dave the Chameleon's style of politics, his "modern compassionate conservatism" con job, his excessive attention to image and public relations, his seeming want to purge the Tory Party of Thatcherism and turn it into a "New Modern Compassionate Green Globally Aware Party", to quote Lord Tebbit.

But come on, it's not all bad, ladies. For example, he wants to scrap the Human Rights Act and replace it with a Bill of Rights that is based on British traditions, he would do away with state identity cards, which is a violation of our ancient English liberties, but most of all, the Old Etonian wants to overturn the ban on foxhunting and bring back our countryside way of life. I'm not particularly enthused about his leadership, but he is at least making some of the right noises. Should we not be partially grateful?

I think David Cameron is doing a very good job. I hope he becomes prime minister.

My only complaint is that I wish he would stop going on about the environment and global warming all the time.

This is a Commonwealth site, so we all can't be Canadians. Obviously many of us are British.
