Tories on the wrong side of history?

Is the Conservative shadow cabinet, including party leader David Cameron, shadow foreign secretary William Hague, shadow defence secretary Liam Fox and shadow EU secretary Mark Francois behind the curve, on the wrong side of history and swimming against the tide of history?






Editorial writer and columnist Mary Dejevsky poses thought-provoking questions about British foreign policy fundamentals in “Britain, Europe and a history of lamentable mis-timing” (The Independent, 27 October 2009).



You can always use foreign secretary David Miliband’s speech yesterday, 26 October 2009, to compare with the article and the signals sent by the UK shadow cabinet, including on Europe.


Read and reflect.
