It's well believed that the majority of voters in the UK are relatively socially conservative compared to centrist party platforms of recent times and are relatively economically left-wing compared to recent centrist party platforms.

Have seen a platform that represents this outlook glibly referred to in the past as a "Fund the NHS; Hang the Peados" party.

Bojo and his posse have already started down this road.

@rpcutts I think the national (small c) conservatism is more based around gradual change which is why you don't see too much push to reverse "progressive" policies like gay rights and abortion. When I was younger I used to ask my mum what she thought the conservatives believed in and she would say "the clue is in the name". They have strayed some way from that path now.
