Stanley's blog

Following the post of 22 July, the following letter was published: on July 24 2009 in The Financial Times:

From Mr Stanley Crossick.

“Sir, In his speech to the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London on July 21, William Hague, the shadow foreign secretary, stated: “Two hundred years ago, in his most famous and shortest speech, my hero William Pitt the Younger said: ‘England has saved herself by her exertions and will, I trust, save Europe by her example.’”

This quotation tells you in what world today’s Conservative party is living.”
