David Cameron is a Conservative. He seeks to preserve what was and what is. There is something to say about conserving what was or is, but when disaster looms, it is time to go forward and explore new territories. Nick Clegg, leader of the Liberal Party which is part of the Cameron coalition, is worried that England is moving away from Europe rather than being an integral part of the continent. “I’m bitterly disappointed by the outcome of last week’s summit,precisely because I think now there is a danger that the UK will be isolated and marginzalised.”
For some reasons, “conservatives” adopt a “devil may care attitude” when it comes to issues of war and economics. They plunge into debt, they disregard the need for jobs to stimulate an economy, and the only thing on their minds is protect the wealthy at all costs.
