Our thanks to Alan for pointing us to Peter Hitchens’s insightful piece in the latest Mail on Sunday column, on Tony Blair, David Cameron, and their chums – here. Under Dave’s leadership for the past decade, the Conservative party has been a shadow of its former self, and the most perceptive chronicler of the disaster has long been Peter Hitchens.
I’m currently enjoying a little light holiday reading, the second volume (of a planned three volumes) of Charles Moore’s outstanding authorised biography of Margaret Thatcher, Everything She Wants (800+ pages, in common with the first volume). Of course Mrs T had flaws, and made mistakes, but she had a moral compass that is entirely absent in Dave. One of my favourite Hitchens books is The Cameron Delusion (2010).
