How can social conservatives vote for David Cameron?

Oct 20, 2014 by

By Laura Perrins, Conservative Woman: [...]  Cameron is a card-carrying member of the liberal elite, no more interested in socially conservative values than Clegg or Miliband. In fact, he told us this himself. Let’s take gay marriage.

Matthew Parris’ Poison

Sep 30, 2014 by

by Alan Craig: Gay marriage illustrated it; Brendon O’Neill exposed it; and more recently the #YesScotland campaign highlighted and traded upon it: the UK’s political class is a corrupt, elitist, irresponsible, disingenuous, patronising, self-serving cartel.
