Tory Coops?

David Cameron is launching the Conservative Cooperative Movement today:

He is set to announce the creation of the Conservative Co-operative Movement to help people form groups to take control of some local public services.

Chris Huhne has a head start on this. His policy review on public services made a big deal about mutuals running public services. He is also the only candidate in the leadership campaign to talk about the old Liberal idea of industrial democracy. I could already write his response to this new Tory initiative; what is Clegg’s?


  1. Rob: Well, given that I seem to be spending a lot of time defending Nick against people calling him a closet Tory, not from me.

    Joe: That’s a very gnomic comment. Care to elaborate?
