Well put
I am a completely unregenerate High Tory. I believe that wealth carries responsibilities towards the less fortunate, and believe firmly in old-fashioned paternalism with every community taking care of its own. I distrust both unfettered Capitalism and Socialism, or any other system that fails to take account of original sin. Catholic socialism à la Frs Conrad Noel and Jack Putterill might be okay in theory, but in practice it might just be a little too utopian.

- the Revd Peter Robinson
