David Cameron, la Crescita di un leader

David Cameron, la Crescita di un leader
David Cameron, la Crescita di un leader
David Cameron, leader of the British Conservative Party, has tried to bring the Conservative Party to a more centrist position, improving its image while also producing a conservative post-Thatcher ideological position. His position has been helped by poor mid-term electoral performance by the Labour government of Gordon Brown. However, support for Cameron’s programme is thin, and depends on success in polls and elections. Consideration (1) of the Conservatives’ recovery in comparison with that of the Labour Party between 1979-97, (2) of electoral geography and (3) of the relation between Cameron’s ideology and policy, together suggest that a victory in the next General Election will be hard, and that in that case Cameron’s position will be precarious. But given the task ahead of the Conservatives, it may be that tolerance of failure would be sensible.

Abstract

David Cameron, leader of the British Conservative Party, has tried to bring the Conservative Party to a more centrist position, improving its image while also producing a conservative post-Thatcher ideological position. His position has been helped by poor mid-term electoral performance by the Labour government of Gordon Brown. However, support for Cameron’s programme is thin, and depends on success in polls and elections. Consideration (1) of the Conservatives’ recovery in comparison with that of the Labour Party between 1979-97, (2) of electoral geography and (3) of the relation between Cameron’s ideology and policy, together suggest that a victory in the next General Election will be hard, and that in that case Cameron’s position will be precarious. But given the task ahead of the Conservatives, it may be that tolerance of failure would be sensible.
