Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The very likely election of Cameron in the near future is more an expression of the poor British election system than an expression of the wish of Britons, to abolish NewLabour socialism.

Oh, believe me, a wish to abolish NuLabour features very highly in my list of objectives.

However, I'm curious where socialism comes into it as my response to that would be "if only". NuLab is not an ideological project that encompasses a consistent set of economic and social objectives which it proposes to sell to the public. Rather, it is an opportunistic one that is driven by the expoitation of working and middle class prejudices to achieve electoral success that enables it to manipulate propaganda more effectively to continue that success. Anything it does along the way is pure by-product of that manipulation and all consequences for good or evil are accidental.
