Nothing Would Be Better

Helen over at Euro Ref points out that it’s not quite true to say Cameron has no policies. He has lots of polices, says Helen, just not any Conservative ones. Or, as I’d put it, he has policies, but no principles.

It’s the old thing Richard Nixon said about some people going into politics because they wanted to do big things, and some people because they want to be big. Cameron is entirely in group two. He has no strategy for government, no central vision to exert a gravitational force on policy. Is it any wonder a list of his positions looks like a selection box full of every piece of Liberal conventional wisdom ?
