I call it his “Heir to Irving strategy”. Not its conventional name, I admit, but I think it fits.
I am not the first person to notice that David Cameron’s conservatism is not what we have been used to from the Conservative Party.
His talk of community, of voluntary action, of civil society; his attempts to explain why he is a progressive; his insistence that there is more to life than money; his emphasis on the need to lift people out of poverty. They seem odd themes for a Tory.
