Wheatcroft on Tory neo-cons
Geoffrey Wheatcroft (The Strange Death of Tory England, Yo! Blair) on the clique of “Anglo-neocons” surrounding David Cameron whose position on the Iraq war, relations with the US and Israel are completely at odds with both the party’s own history and with the pattern of right-wing parties in Europe, which tend to support their own national interest rather than those of foreign countries. Among those cited are Michael Gove (MP for Surrey Heath) and Douglas Carswell (Harwich & Clacton, Essex), who has opined that the British army in Iraq and Afghanistan are fighting on behalf of Israel.
