Confessions of an Old Labour High Tory
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book reclaims the traditions of patriotism and social conservatism on the British and wider Left. It challenges the standard accounts of Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher and Winston Churchill. It reassesses the importance of Jacobitism in British and American political history. It makes the conservative and Tory cases against nuclear weapons and Post Office privatisation. It proposes a domestic policy programme formed and informed by the foregoing. It sets out comprehensive re-examinations of the Irish Question; of Islam, Judaism and the Middle East; and of the nature of the American Republic and British relations with it. And it defends the Catholic Church against fashionable attacks.
