Michael Howard has become Leader of the Conservative Party

Amongst other remarks he made when his elevation to Leader was announced, Mr Howard included these sentiments:

A new start?

"And when that happens - indeed even when it does not happen - there are things we will need to remember. That we are a party broad and generous; broad in appeal and generous in outlook."

I will be watching closely to see if these fine words are translated into action in terms of policy how they deal with upcoming issues. It is too soon to say I am 'cautiously hopeful', but at least I can see I might become so.
