Blue Labour

I see that David Cameron has defended his push for the centre ground.

Except it is not the centre ground- supporting ideas such as "relative poverty" and Polly Toynbee's rants is not triangulation, it is capitulation.

This country does not need more of the same- it needs a radical deregulation and much clearer limits to the power of the state.

The Conservatives are offering nothing new that can advance this agenda. Either they are serious about their new stand, in which case they are wrong, or they do not believe a word, in which case they are untrustworthy.

Looking at Cameron this weekend, it could even be both.
