Let us hope that in the period of fiscal authority that will inevitably follow next
year‟s general election that the two parties can unite on this most crucial of areas.
Mutually agreeing on the necessity of delivering a respect agenda and how to foster
higher levels of social capital, self-reliance and working class aspiration, while re-
ducing the size of the state, eliminating a „benefits culture‟ and renewing a collective
„can do‟ attitude among our country‟s very poorest. In response to the failings of po-
litical, economic and cultural institutions in the first decade of the 21st century it is
often claimed that increased social capital is a fundamental prerequisite, this author
agrees but such an undertaking can only be successful if allied with those funda-
mentally socially conservative values of diligence, deference and duty that have
seen us through far harder times than these.

policies of former Labour cabinet member James Purnell in his short time as head of
the Department of Work and Pensions.
