I have decided to change the title of this blog. The new name is a bit more interesting, I think – and quite accurate, too. The term ‘conservative anarchist’ is borrowed from the great George Orwell, who saw himself in that guise. (Unfortunately I cannot at this moment remember exactly where he uses the term.) In other words, someone who has a strong attachment to tradition, the past and established ways of doing things – particularly of Britain – but also a deepseated dislike and distrust of arbitrary authority and government interference, whether on a local, national or supranational level. Yes – I think that more or less sums it up.
