(6) Vote Conservative... because of Liam Fox

VoteConservativeFoxConservativeHome does not support David Cameron's decision to put NHS and development funding ahead of defence. Nor do most Tory members. The armed forces need a champion in Cabinet who will fight for defence and that champion should be Liam Fox, the second most popular member of the shadow cabinet.

Dr Fox believes in the renewal of Trident, in stopping Iran becoming a nuclear power and in a strategic defence review that ensures Britain maintains a capacity to fight unilaterally in its national interest.

Dr Fox has also put the renewal of the military covenant at the heart of Tory defence plans. Scholarships for the children of servicemen killed in action was the latest manifestation of this.
