The concluding chapter draws together the findings of the research, briefly reviewing what the book has shown about leadership strategy between 1997 and 2010. The book argues that the ideological legacy of Thatcherism played a central role in framing and shaping these intraparty debates, and that an appreciation of this is vital for explaining the nature and limits of the Conservatives’ renewal under Cameron. As such, the evaluation of ‘Cameronism’ finds that this was essentially a project aimed at detoxifying the Conservative brand rather than undertaking a more far-reaching reappraisal of contemporary conservatism.
