Cameron is a whig

"Labour talk of a leadership change is not just petty and mean-minded; it is sublimely irrelevant. The question that matters is whether it can retrieve the non-statist democratic republican strand in its heritage — exemplified by John Milton, John Stuart Mill, Tom Mann and RH Tawney — and abandon the heavyhanded, statist democratic collectivism that has been second nature to Labour governments since the 1920s. There is still time. Just." —David Marquand
