The Decline and Fall of New Labour in Britain: What Can the U.S. Expect from a Future Conservative Administration?
Recorded on July 29, 2008
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's Labour government has
suffered a spectacular decline in political fortunes over the past
few months, with a succession of polls showing the opposition
Conservative Party with a commanding double-digit lead. The
prospect of Conservative leader David Cameron entering Downing
Street has grown dramatically. If elected, Cameron will lead
at a critically important time for Britain as a world power.
He has an opportunity to restore British sovereignty in Europe,
rebuild the United Kingdom's military capability, and re-energize
the Anglo-American alliance.
Join us as Shadow Defense Secretary Liam Fox, former Army
Spokesman Crispian Cuss, and political commentator Douglas Murray
discuss the likely foreign, defense and security policies of a
future Conservative administration.
