The new politics: Liberal Conservatism or same old Tories?

Peter King


Does the coalition government represent a new politics in Britain, or is the new government just the same old Tories hiding behind an opportunist pact with the Liberal Democrats? Does Cameron differ from past Conservatives like Margaret Thatcher, and if so, how? This book looks at the coalition government in the context of conservative ideas and seeks to assess what, if anything, is new about it.

Keywords: coalition government, new politics, British politics, Liberal Democrats, David Cameron, Conservatives, Margaret Thatcher
