Catching up with the British parade

By Jonah Goldberg

LONDON —" From this side of the Atlantic, the refusal of House Republicans to support Barack Obama's so-called stimulus plan looks nothing less than Churchillian.

Alas, here in Britain, the lesson of compassionate conservatism's welcome demise remains lost on the Tory leadership. British conservatives remain fascinated with oxymorons such as "progressive conservatism" and "Red Toryism." (Sometimes the prefix "oxy" in "oxymoron" seems like gilding the lily.)"
