Listen to this podcast from the Battle of Ideas archive on the past, present and future of conservatism
With the Conservative Party winning a surprise majority in the UK’s general election, what does conservatism mean today? This session from the Battle of Ideas 2011 addresses how David Cameron’s Tories, who have in many ways sought to distance themselves from a lot of conservative values, fit into the conservative tradition and asks whether conservatism as an idea has a future.
