Meet the Author

Peter Hitchens

Peter Hitchens is a conservative British author, broadcaster, and journalist, and is currently a regular columnist for the London Mail on Sunday. Born in the British colony of Malta in the closing years of the British Empire, he says he was brought up for a world that no longer exists. A former revolutionary, he attributes his return to faith largely to his experience of socialism in practice, in many years spent reporting in Eastern Europe and nearly three years as a resident correspondent in Moscow during the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    Useful study of modern British conservatism

    In this exciting book, journalist Peter Hitchens examines the modern Conservative party. He attacks the 'thought-free, obsolete idea of Left and Right' and notes that our MPs now represent the state to the people, not the people to the state. He denounces NATO as 'the military arm of the new interventionist idealism' and exposes the 'New Cold War' lie - "the invented threat abroad is used to justify a stronger state at home." He opposes the war on Iraq and the 'war against Terror', which, like the Cold War, is a permanent war supposedly justifying a permanent state of emergency. Hitchens attacks the Tories wrecking of our railways and our locomotive and carriage works industry. He points out that the Tories asked for the Beeching report and implemented it and that, decades later, they chose 'a particularly damaging form of privatisation of the railways'. He notes that the EU 'imposed the privatisation everyone decries as wrong'. He comments, "The Left are right to put part of the blame for the current riot of selfishness on the shoulders of Lady Thatcher. . they are right to perceive a moral emptiness in her government, which showed no interest in moral or cultural issues ." He writes, "I couldn't identify with the car-obsessed, pinstriped, market-worshipping, greedy supporters she attracted." He reminds us that the Tory party "enthusiastically took Britain into the Common Market, negotiated the Single Market and the Single European Act and the Treaty of Maastricht, repeatedly giving away vetoes, fishing grounds and chunks of independence. It is the party which, after two years posing as 'sceptical' and dishonestly promising a referendum on the issue, last November accepted the European Constitution as a fait accompli. . his [Cameron's] promises of safeguards against further EU advances were meaningless and politically illiterate." All three parties, and the 'left', insult the British people when they deride as xenophobes those who want to leave the EU and those who oppose mass immigration: 47 percent of the British public want us to leave the EU and 70 per cent oppose mass immigration.
