Lately I have asked myself whether I am a Tory or am I just right? Was I right when I supported Labour back in 1997 or was I just delusional. At the time I thought I was right. Now Iain Dale has made me think twice about my political loyalties. Are the Conservative party right, or are they just right for the moment? please read this. I believe they are right for the moment.
Don't get me wrong, deep down I'm a Conservative, but Conservatism is changing to be the party of the people. We, as a country have made mistakes, we have banned corporal punishment, we have reduced the power of parents and given that power to children, we have put the rights of criminals before those of victims, we have given up our freedoms in the name of safety, we are supporting the lazy in the name of charity, enough is enough.
God I hate Liberals. Unfortunately the Labour party is riddled with them. Idiots that know they have no chance of power without hiding under the guise of Labourism (think Nuclear/Trident). Conservatism is not always fair for the few, but it is usually right for the many. Sometimes you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs - I think that is Conservatism at it's purest. A few kids will suffer from the cane of an over zealous headmaster, while many (and society in general) will benefit from good discipline.
We have gone too far towards wishy washy Liberalism. It's a failed experiment. It's time to go back to the traditional values that worked. It's time for the Tories.
