Daniel Hannan, a UK Member of the European Parliament, spoke last week at CPAC. The clarity and profundity of his elucidation of the history, evolution, and current state of conservative principles puts most American pundits to shame.
It’s long, a bit over 27 minutes, but his speech is well worth hearing. Go on, you know you want to watch it.
This guy would make a terrific Prime Minister… or a superb immigrant.
It is occasionally — OK, OK, frequently — worth remembering that American history is British history, up until the late 18th century. Our traditions of law and liberty descend from English law and liberty.
