Via David Cameron’s speech in full – Telegraph, a biting attack on the liberal left:
Oh yes, I do understand. Believe me I do understand and I am disgusted by the idea that we should aim for any less for a child from a poor background than a rich one. I have contempt for the notion that we should accept narrower horizons for a black child than a white one. Yes it’s the age-old irony of the liberal left: they practice oppression and call it equality.
I recommend the full speech.
At conference fringe meetings, I spoke against HS2, as I expect to do on Thursday in the Commons, in support of planning reform with a right to refuse and on the subject of how the Big Society idea can help fight poverty. Please see my Twitter feed for more.
