In recent weeks the Prime Minister has turned the political agenda to his programme for ‘social reform’ with a series of speeches tackling some of our biggest social problems. This is David Cameron the social reformer taking on the big social issues of our time.
As we move ever closer to an EU referendum the Prime Minister is clearly determined to ensure that questions over our relationship with Europe do not define his legacy.
After the EU referendum has come and gone, the Prime Minister will be left with a party in need of a common cause. The Conservative Party should back the Prime Minister to deliver a new ‘long term social justice plan’ and make ‘social reform’ the Government’s guiding narrative.
Whilst arguments for ‘leave’ or ‘remain’ will dominate our political debate over the next few months there is no reason why social justice should not define the next few years.
