Boris Johnson: liberal or conservative

  • Gladstonian Liberal

    With the election of Boris Johnson as leader of the Conservative party might we see a revival of liberalism? In a matter of hours, Boris will become Prime Minister and begin announcing his Cabinet. He is despised by the Left who paint him as a reactionary but his parliamentary voting record is liberal on personal issues. He has said again and again he is in favour of free trade and pro immigration. Of course, he wants to use the State to do stuff (infrastructure, run public services etc.) but compared to the last few Prime Ministers he might well be the most liberal leader Britain has had for a while. Or not!
