The Tebbit Test
David Cameron risks leaving right-wing voters feeling disenfranchised as he tries to shift the Tories to the centre, Norman Tebbit has warned.
Ex-Conservative chairman Lord Tebbit told BBC Question Time it was "dangerous for the democratic system" if the parties looked too similar.
See the problem is that Tebbit went into politics to say what he believed in whereas Blair and Cameron take the advice of marketing experts and employ The Hotelling-Downs Model of Spatial/Political Competition. So much more 21st Century, and if you feel disenfranchised you are some right or left wing nutter.
