    Predefinito Rif: The History of the Conservative Party

    Mi sono preso la briga di trascrivere parola per parola il testo del video promozionale. Credo ne sia valsa la pena perchè riflette, nella comunicazione, la prospettiva politica con cui oggi il Conservative Party intende conquistare il voto degli elettori e tornare a Downing Street. I miei sentimenti al riguardo sono ambivalenti, ma prima di esprimermi vorrei leggere prima alcuni vostri giudizi in merito.

    Mi permetto soltanto di sottolineare due cose. La prima riguarda l'immagine che oggi i conservatori intendono dare di sè e che è quella del "cambiamento progressivo". Un cambiamento che, afferma Burke, è alla base della conservazione stessa.

    La seconda riguarda l'utilizzo ostentato di termini come "change", "progress", "modern", "social" e l'immagine di un uomo dalla faccia pulita, sbarbato, con la camicia bianca e la cravatta blu. Vi ricorda qualcuno?
