He wants to reduce state and government control; but (like Margaret Thatcher) he wants to do so by state and government action. He rejects the past of his party; but (again like Margaret Thatcher) he forgets that if you lose your past you have no future. He believes in social morality, the family; but he hasn't learnt that government affects such things only by its own example.
He wants a new centre and centre-left politics; but it looks more like the new centre-right politics of pseudo-socialists, from Australia and New Zealand to France and Spain. He calls it new Labour; but it looks more like old Labour, under Harold Wilson or even Ramsay MacDonald.
