David Cameron, Britain’s official leader of the opposition, expounds on his vision for British society.
The size, scope and role of the state is of course the scene of a vigorous political debate. But I believe it is pointless to draw dividing lines where none exist – so I want to start my contribution with where we all agree. Ask anyone of any political colour the kind of country they want to see and they’ll say a Britain that is richer, that is safer, that is greener but perhaps most important to us all, a country that is fairer and where opportunity is more equal.
Agree or disagree with what follows, you are, of course, free to contemplate when it last was that a Canadian political leader spoke about this society as Cameron does here about his own.
