The Ghost of Toryism Past: the Spirit of Conservatism Future

I was delighted to be asked by the Centre for Policy studies to give this lecture. But as a member of the Cabinet which led the Conservative Party to its greatest ever defeat, and as a former Member of Parliament who lost to Labour on a 17% swing, you will understand that I am not here to lecture anyone.
