Terrifying Sunday Times article by William Hague about how he plans to win the next election: Bush shows Conservatism can win again. Hague talks welfare reform, new audiences, the "forces of the third way" (echoing Blair's "forces of conservatism" mantra), and low taxes. Oh, and he calls Labour the liberal elite. Hopefully Labour will win the debate that higher taxes can be good, and I think it's a little odd to use the liberal elite label given we don't even have a true libertarian party in the UK, but there we go.
