Conservatism - real concern, true compassion.
Hatfield Girl presciently remarks that in the blogosphere it seems to be blogs from the Right that express most viscerally genuine concern for all the people of Britain. It's a good observation. The Left are driven by a mechanistic ideology, and would dearly love to be able to say the same for the Right. But Conservatism isn't about ideology - it's about people and community and nation.
I readily admit to being a One Nation, small State Conservative. With a reliance on my own conscience and judgment that doesn't come from any Little Red Party Manual of Glib Answers. I think many who would be reluctant to call themselves Conservatives think as I do.
Right, light blogging this weekend - down on the boat.
