A Left-Wing Conservative Blog
Lord Skidelsky, herein favourably referenced, was a founding and finishing member of the Social Democratic Party who went on to resign from the Conservative front bench in order to oppose the bombing of Kosovo and whose latest book is entitled Keynes: The Return of the Master.He is also active in Balanced Migration, which is co-chaired by a Labour MP, Frank Field. Other participants include a leading Co-operative MP, a veteran trade union leader, a prominent Muslim member of the House of Lords, a former Socialist Campaign Group MP (the widow of another and the mother of a third), a London-based Kurdish journalist, and a figure who resigned from the Blair Government in order to act as its critical friend before opposing the invasion of Iraq.
I never knew Mr. Skidelsky opposed the Kosovo bombing. I already enjoyed reading his books on Keynes and I always thought his style, very similar to Gibbon, is highly enjoyable. But now I even have more reason to like him.
