Liam Fox, wanabee conservative party leader

Thank you BBC

I have never posted on politics before but Liam Fox announced that he is to run to be conservative party leader and was speaking on Radio Five Live. I was struck by what he said when he set out his stall saying that when the tories got in in 1979 the problem was that the economy was falling apart, now the problem is that society is falling apart! It struck me as rare for a politician to stress the needs of societal cohesion over economic management or public service management...all our politicians seem to be managers now!

I doubt he has got a chance of winning, although there is a lot of time to go, but if you want to read a little bit more (stress on the 'little') try here.
