There Must Be No Right Turn for David Cameron
The big political question about the Conservative Party, which will exercise us until the next election, is whether David Cameron can resist the pull to the right. In the face of recalcitrant polls, William Hague, IDS and Michael Howard all took a right turn – which leads to a political precipice. Meanwhile, across the political divide, Blair has successfully kept to the centre ground, and as a result became the first Labour leader to win three consecutive general elections. This article argues that Cameron should do the sensible thing and follow Blair's strategy.

Abstract

The big political question about the Conservative Party, which will exercise us until the next election, is whether David Cameron can resist the pull to the right. In the face of recalcitrant polls, William Hague, IDS and Michael Howard all took a right turn – which leads to a political precipice. Meanwhile, across the political divide, Blair has successfully kept to the centre ground, and as a result became the first Labour leader to win three consecutive general elections. This article argues that Cameron should do the sensible thing and follow Blair's strategy.
