Conservative Party's Statement of Aims and Goals

Writing about web page http://www.conservatives.com/pdf/BuiltToLast-AimsandValues.pdf

Just in case anyone is interested the Conservative Party has produced a detailed statement of aims and goals which has been created through extensive consultation of the members of the party (can be read from the link in the head of this post). This isn’t a completely final document because the Conservative Party believes in democratic choice and discussion, so it will need to be voted on by members, but I do think that it could well be voted through.

If you are a member of the party do consider voting on this. If you are not then you can put your thoughts here. Regardless of your views it is certainly worth a read – there might even be some sections which surprise you.

(I was especially pleased with the section which explicitly noted the link between giving aid and gaining better security in return. Which was a very similar argument to that which I heard Bill Clinton making on CNN over the weekend.)

  1. What else can I expect from the Conservative party than a vacuous document demonstrating wooly ‘values’. They’ve published this simply because you can’t really argue against ‘fighting poverty’ and ‘protecting the environment’. I refuse to engage in any sort of debate until they have anything concrete to say.

    Although looking at point one, I see they still have this morbid determination to keep arguing for the ‘trickle down’ solution to poverty….

    I thought that it game some measure so solid grounding to the ideas of the party, obviously it would be impossible to set out exactly how each point will be fully carried out because of not knowing when office will come (but I would guess 2009/10…) and not knowing the situation the country will find itself in. Even so there are firm commitments there; far more than you would tend to find in a manifesto at election time.

    And if I may be so bold as to say so (which you know I am…) your objection seems not to be based on any actual idea contained within the document – a little vacuous perchance? ; )
