I watch/listen via iTunes to this channel four times a week and since May and her policies are mentioned, as are many geopolitical topics, and they asked me, a follower, to pass on this channel, here you go. You're welcome.

Most Conservative members don't even remember they are members of the Conservative Party so it isn't difficult.

And the point is that people who take time out to join a political party are self evidently more engaged with politics than the population in general, joining a political party would be the definition of greater engagement.

Perhaps some join for the great offers on Waterford crystal decanter sets, I don't know.

Scruton delivers a decent speech here about the problems that Conservatives in this country have when faced against the Left. One of the major issues is articulating the positives of existing structures and institutions against the inherent power of negativity that socialism has. i.e "this thing is shit - we need to change it".

I wonder what the cut off date for institutions and structures considered worth preserving by Scruton are, as I can see YouTubes out here I am going to guess at 1277. Am I right?

:shock: Blimey.

I don't have a huge amount of time for all of Scruton's political views but it strikes me he is generally intellectually consistent and he has morals, which is something in modern politics.
I wonder what his take on Trump is, other than polite disgust.

It is to Theresa May’s credit that she has the self-awareness to unravel of her own accord, losing faith in her rhetoric even faster than her opponents can attack it. It was, without compare, the most rambling, directionless, insecure and inarticulate new year’s interview a British leader has ever given

Reshuffling this cabinet is like having a shit then rearranging your turds in the bowl.

On Cif someone said: emptying the ashtrays on the Hindenberg.

All it does is highlight how powerless she is surely.

Indeed, utter shambles:

However, the prime minister’s attempt to stamp her authority on her party was overshadowed by the botched changes at cabinet level, in which Jeremy Hunt refused to give up his job as health secretary and Greening refused to take the role of work and pensions secretary.


Asked whether the Conservative party was in a mess, (party chairman) Lewis replied “not quite” but was unable to say how many members it now had.

The SNP is now Britain's second biggest party in the paid up membership stakes.

Who could have guessed engaging with people their interests and their problems, the young especially, could bring dividends!?
