Why I am a Conservative

“I am a Conservative to preserve all that is good in our constitution, a Radical to remove all that is bad. I seek to preserve property and to respect order, and I equally decry the appeal to the passions of the many or the prejudices of the few.”

Benjamin Disraeli, Conservative politician and first Jewish [Sephardi] born British Prime Minister 1867, 1874-1880.


  1. Disraeli was such a handsome man. And of course a patriotic British Jew. Yes, he may have been a convert to the C of E, but that was the culture of the time (you couldn't get a degree or vote or be an MP if you were Jew). I reckon if he were around today, he would have remained an observant, rather than a lapsed Jew.

  2. Hi David,

    But was he as Jewish as Miliband?
