in our Christian values, according to Politics Home, whilst the BBC reports that he called for a revival of traditional Christian values to counter Britain's "moral collapse". It is indeed ironic that this exhortation comes from a man who admits to being a 'vaguely practising Christian; who wishes to counter the 'moral collapse' of our society while belonging to a class of our society who, by their decisions, have assisted in that moral collapse; that he belongs to a class of our society who should be the last to advise us on morals, especially in view of the lack thereof they have exhibited - and still do - where their own conduct is concerned.
In raising this subject Cameron is opening yet another can of worms, as he did with his idea that the rules of primogeniture should be changed - and as did Blair with his policy of devolution. How Cameron believes 'Christian values' can be imposed while at the same time accepting the Human Rights Act and all that that entails must surely mean - to coin a phrase - God only knows. Charles Moore, in his usual Saturday op-ed piece in today's Daily Telegraph, enters the debate on primogeniture with what is, for him, a reasonable article in which he poses the question whether the Government has really thought through its plans to change the rules of succession. The answer to Moore's question, on past experience, is obviously not!
That our political elite are basically the root cause of the problems we presently experience is no longer in doubt. That the dictatorial power they wield must therefore be curbed is also no longer in doubt. By what right to they change the fabric of our society; by what right to they change our constitution; by what right do they change the rules of primogeniture without the express agreement of we the people?
Like Cameron, I too believe it is time for change - although the change I have in mind will not be one of which he, or his 'class', would approve.
