Tory, Tory, Tory

In his speech today to the UK Conservative Conference, party leader David Cameron opposed reductions in taxation, endorsed same-sex marriage, praised government-controlled healthcare as "one of the greatest achievements of the 20th century," omitted any words of praise for the British mission in Iraq, attacked Tony Blair for drawing too close to the United States, aligned himself with a more liberal approach to Britain's surging crime rates, urged the Anglican Church to admit non-Anglicans to church schools while endorsing more state funding for Muslim schools.

David Frum, National Review Online, 10/5/2006 not liking the style of the new leader of the British Conservative Party, David Cameron.

Maybe I am a Tory indeed.

Obviously a dangerous left-winger.

Is this the centre of British politics?

The Conservatives are the centre-right. Labour and the Liberal Democrats are both centre-left parties.
