Tory party has salvation in sight

first_imgIf you are taking even a cursory interest in British politics over the next few weeks, there are a few phrases which you should be familiar with. ‘We must claim the centre ground’; ‘Modernisation’; ‘Opportunity for the many and not the few’; ‘Radical reform’; ‘Equality’; ‘Change’; ‘Renewal’; ‘Compassion’; to name but a few. I quote directly from Tony Blair’s speech to the Labour Party Conference at the end of September, in which he attempted to illustrate his core beliefs and plans for the next few years. However, the reason for giving these phrases was not to talk about Tony Blair; it was to talk about the impending Tory leadership contest. It may interest you to know that every single one of these very phrases, or very close derivations of these, was used in David Davis’ recent speech on his vision of ‘Modern Conservatism in the 21st century’. Most of them could be found in David Cameron’s speech at his campaign launch only last week. They all can be found many times over in Ken Clarke’s statements, interviews, and speeches in recent months. These men are, at the point of writing, the three main contenders for the Conservative Party leadership.What has become plainly obvious is that they are trying to attract support by using the same language and sentiments as the dominant and centrist Tony Blair. I am not trying to suggest that past leadership candidates, of any party, have not claimed to want to move the party into the centre ground of politics – most do – but the centre ground of politics was there long before Blair. What I mean is that there has been a quite deliberate shift to using ‘Blairite’ rhetoric in an attempt by the candidates to show that they are true centrist politicians, ie not prisoners of the Tories’ strong right wing. This illustrates the level to which New Labour has changed political discourse in Britain. Blair, for all his foibles, has skilfully managed to articulate the hopes, opinions, and aspirations of the majority of people in this country. That is why a majority of the middle class who used to call themselves Conservatives has voted for him over the past 8 years. Previously, Tory leadership candidates earned their spurs by saying how much they hated New Labour and its ideas. Now, they have finally realised what it will take to win: accept that there is a new political landscape, set by New Labour, and shape their message accordingly.Tory leaders understand that they need to do what Labour did in the early 1990’s after Thatcher: a painful modernising process, ignoring the extreme section in the party, adapting the Party’s policies and beliefs to the current political climate – the temperature of which had been changed by Blair while as PM. Therefore, we are beginning to see the seeds of recovery for the party that used to be called ‘the natural party of government’.Now the difficult part: who should the party choose for leader and trust to carry through the difficult renewal of the party? David Davis is the front runner, and undoubtedly a man of the right from the IDS and William Hague camp, despite now trying to convince us that he has been a centrist all along. He definitely has advantages: in particular, his working class background of having grown up on a council estate gives him credentials that Ken Clarke and David Cameron do not have. His right wing background doesn’t mean that he isn’t sincere about trying to change the party’s message, but it does mean that his reform will be slow, cautious, and could possibly run into trouble if his main backers, the party’s right wing, decide that he is no longer ‘one of them’. David Cameron is the newcomer. At only 38 years old, and having sat in the Commons for only 4 years, he is appealing, photogenic and certainly very able. He is certainly a true moderniser, and would also be more genuinely committed and able to change the party’s appeal than Davis, and I believe he has the potential to be a great Prime Minister in the future. However, he is very short on political experience, and it must be remembered that since the party started electing their leader in 1965, they have always chosen a candidate from a lower middle class or working class background: Heath, Thatcher, Major, Hague, IDS, Howard. The party’s sensitivity to choosing a ‘toff ’ as leader may make things even more difficult for him, the urbane Old Etonian. Now that Portillo has dropped out of a political career, Ken Clarke is the last remaining ‘big beast’ of the party. An earthy and charismatic heavyweight, fond of his pints and cigars, he has long been a proponent of centrist ‘One Nation’ Conservatism, and is the only candidate who has long said that the party should learn lessons from New Labour’s success. He is the figure most popular with the public, especially with the middle class swing voters who deserted the party for Tony Blair; one might think that the party would be mad not to choose such a man. His main problem among party members, who, despite Michael Howard’s best efforts, have the final say after MPs have whittled the choice down to two candidates, remains his enthusiasm for Europe: he would be leading a wildly Eurosceptic party, and the shadow of the disastrous in-fighting of the Major years looms over this scenario.Whether the party can get over this single aspect of Kenneth Clarke’s politics and pick the one man who might actually stand a chance of beating Labour at the next election, only time will tell us.ARCHIVE: 0th week MT 2005last_img read more

ND continues work in Haiti one year after quake

first_imgOne year after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake shook Haiti, the Notre Dame Haiti Program remains present in the country through relief efforts and public health programs, Sarah Craig, the program manager, said. “We were in Haiti before, during and after the earthquake,” Craig said. “We saw a need to step aside from our public health program to address the efforts for relief after the earthquake.” The Notre Dame Haiti Program, led by Fr. Tom Streit, fights infectious diseases throughout the country. The program specifically targets lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis. After the earthquake struck Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010, the Haiti Program turned its attention to the emergency. Streit and other volunteers provided medical support for victims of the earthquake’s destruction. Craig said over 100 of 500 volunteers were Notre Dame alumni from the medical profession. These volunteers saw over 30,000 patients, performed 700 surgeries and delivered 250 babies during the six months following the earthquake, she said. The volunteers faced basic challenges such as the lack of shelter, transportation, water and food. Medical supplies and support were also scarce, Craig said. “We also are addressing some of the needs for rebuilding, specifically in Léogâne where we are headquartered,” Craig said. “Our building there is our home base and where we concentrate most of our efforts.” According to the program’s summer 2010 newsletter, the earthquake did not alter the program’s mission. “In truth, The Notre Dame Haiti Program’s mission in Haiti has never changed. For 17 years, the program has aided and fought for Haiti by researching elimination methods for lymphatic filariasis (LF) and neglected tropical diseases (NTD),” the newsletter stated, “But since the beginning, the overarching goal has been improving the lives of the people of Haiti, and in that respect, the last six months have been no different.” Following the earthquake, a cholera outbreak disrupted the program’s work with lymphatic filariasis and other diseases. “Almost worse than the earthquake was the cholera outbreak in the fall,” Craig said. The Haiti Program will resume its disease elimination programs beginning Monday. As the program turns back to treat disease elimination, rebuilding was still an agenda for Notre Dame volunteers. “Disease elimination is our forte and what we are in Haiti to do,” Craig said. “But we still will work on rebuilding because we are morally and ethically responsible to do so.” The Haiti Program headquarters in Léogâne and the program’s three other facilities in the country remained standing in the middle of rubble after the earthquake. The buildings were among the few with running water and electricity. Student groups such as ND Fighting NTDs and the Haiti Working Group were also among the organizations that reached out to victims in Haiti. These groups used the crisis in Haiti to highlight the need for public health initiatives. ND Fighting NTDs president Emily Conron said she hopes the club will send students to Haiti someday to witness its public health initiatives firsthand. “We use Haiti as an example of how focusing on neglected tropical diseases can help the community,” Conron said. “By focusing on public health the economic and social and even emotional repercussions [of these initiatives are] very clear.” The Haiti Program is an example of how public health programs can encourage hope for a better future, Conron said. In a summer 2010 thank-you letter to all Haiti Program volunteers, Streit explained the involvement of the Notre Dame community in Haiti. “A network of ND-connected health professionals is continuing to save lives,” the letter stated. “ND engineers have already helped determine the viability of important structural assets in several communities, while ND architects are part of a massive 11 school building project in Léogâne. Many alumni are working in response teams addressing nutrition, relief logistics and development planning. “Haiti requires the kind of support that is both immediate and enduring as well as a profound commitment to the idea that if we are part of the Body of Christ together, we are all at this moment Haitians.”last_img read more

How Scotland turned its unpredictable weather into an advantage

first_imgThe British branded and sold rain as a kind of experience, we just have to experience English rain once in a lifetime hehe joke aside, but that’s a fact. No one is bothered by the constant rain in England, let alone a negative trigger for travel or a motive not to travel to England due to bad weather. It’s always bad weather, but that doesn’t mean there are other motives for traveling. Anyway, here’s one little test, before watching the video. How do you perceive Scotland, and how after this video? Thus, tourist destinations face the same challenge, because they do not have all the ideal conditions, in fact, some do not have any conditions for tourism, but still, despite everything, they know how to tell a story and turn the shortcomings into an advantage. But there is no right answer, because everything is in the head of the individual or “mindset”. Of course, it is certainly better to strive and work on ourselves to be optimistic, and also to approach solving all challenges. So in the current situation, we can whine, be depressed and spend our free time just watching movies and series, and on the other hand we can dedicate most of our time to education, research or learning a new skill. A glass half full or empty? An eternal question, which is even dealt with by various scientific researches. In any case, the narrative is to reduce the negative impact of the “bad” belt, and simply accept it as such, and that doesn’t mean that if the weather is bad you don’t have to travel and explore Scotland. Find out in the video if they managed to get the bad weather out of the formula and the negative mindest. As one local proverb says: There are three types of weather in Scotland. It’s raining or it’s just raining or it’s going to rain. So Scotland, its unpredictable time, where all seasons can have in one day, has turned to its advantage or at least tried to eliminate it as a negative aspect. Some of the obvious shortcomings need to be openly acknowledged, but through narrative there is always talk to be told, both positively and negatively. It all depends on the mindset, as in the case of a glass of water. Of course, the main motive for coming is always quality, different, interesting and authentic content of the entire tourist destination. So in 2018, the Scottish Tourist Board released a video A Guide to Weather in Scotland, in which they skillfully play with words and just their shortcomings, try to present in an interesting way as a lifestyle or Scottish way of life. Well in that spirit, I bring you a new interesting story that is coming to us this time from Scotland. As I have repeatedly pointed out, it is now time to plan, redefine development strategies, and learn new knowledge and skills so that when the day comes after the coronavirus, we are more prepared for all the new challenges.last_img read more

Pool jewel in crown of Hamptons country-styled home

first_imgThe home is surrounded by hinterland greenery. “A lot of it I imported from Bali and other pieces I sourced from different shops around the Gold Coast,” said Ms Manning.And remember those barn doors?

It all overlooks the sprawling, landscaped lawn, dotted with play equipment, a motocross track and an in-ground trampoline. The extra features have provided hours of fun for the couple’s children in their own backyard. The luxe look continues in the bedrooms.“I found it really hard to find big lights, because the ceilings were so high, so when we did a trip to Bali, I found lights there and they were really easy to bring back.” The finishing touches included a freestanding claw foot tub, beaded chandeliers and a sunken fire pit. How’s this for a pool setting! The property is located at 584 Austinville Rd.A SWIRL of deep blue among white washed diamonds and emerald green grass — the picturesque pool setting is the colourful jewel in the crown of this carefully styled Austinville acreage abode. “The pool and that amazing view is my absolute favourite feature,” said vendor Jade Manning. The interior is dazzling.It’s also the perfect offset to the home’s minimalist colour scheme, accentuated by natural lighting, and darker hued flooring.“I loved the Hamptons country-style houses, neutral palette, and earthy tones,” said vendor Jade Manning. The neutral colour scheme was inspired by the Hamptons. The seamless combination of indoors with outside, and standout statement pieces tick two more Hamptons-esque design boxes.One of Ms Manning’s favourite features is a pair of 100-year-old timber barn doors, painstakingly crafted by her carpenter husband, also named Jade. One of the doors can be found dividing off part of the games room, kitted out with a bar. Plenty of fun features for the kids.The land settled on Christmas Eve. It was a blank canvas for the couple to create their dream home.“We renovated our last house twice but I’ve always wanted to build a house,” Ms Manning said. The mother of two carried a design folder everywhere for when inspiration struck. This used to be a vacant block. Hopping around. Kangaroos are often spotted at the property.

We had a draft person draw up our ideas and had a few changes,” Ms Manning said.
