The effortless slide of the modern Conservative Party into slushy muddle headed Leftism continues…
The Conservatives must pass “the Danny Boyle test” and appeal to modern Britain rather than “nostalgists promoting a better yesterday”, a senior minister warns.
Damian Green, the immigration minister, says David Cameron must resist moving to the Right and the “seductive blind alley” of policies favoured by the party’s “most intense supporters”. He argues that to win the election, the Tories must appeal to people from different backgrounds and classes. Boyle, a successful film director, oversaw the widely praised opening ceremony for London 2012, which celebrated Britain’s diverse, multi-cultural make-up and lauded the NHS but was met with unease by some traditionalists.
Get that? Embrace multiculturalism, worship the NHS, hang the bankers and to hell with all that made our Nation great aka “nostalgists”. Damian Green makes me green at the gills. His ilks have destroyed the Conservative Party and the fact that such a man presides over Immigration should tell you plenty. A Conservative Party that is virtually indistinguishable from the Labour Party is one not worth having. Green is an undertaker for his Party but I wonder if he is simply saying what the Cameron leadership thinks in private. Passing the Danny Boyle test means failing the Conservative test.
