Example text

In contrast, left-wing theories emphasise the role of social and economic factors, materialism and lack of support. Similarly, they characterise the differences between political philosophies equally succinctly: Conservatism is an individualist doctrine which holds the individual to be free and rational, and therefore entirely responsible for his or her own actions. The parties of the left and centre, by contrast, believe that individual actions are shaped not only by individual will, but also by the broader social and economic context in which they occur.

However, although a product of political pragmatism to a degree, Michael Howard’s ‘prison works’ agenda can also be understood as more than simple opportunism and as projecting directly from his own beliefs about crime and his view on how it best be prevented. In a similar vein, Jones and Newburn (2007) observe that Michael Howard’s enthusiasm for mandatory sentencing as a means to deter and incapacitate recidivists was specifically borne out of his strong personal interest in the idea. His Crime (Sentences) Bill sought to introduce automatic life sentences for second time rapists or violent offenders and mandatory minimum sentences for both a third domestic burglary and also for a third Class A drug trafficking offence (New Labour subsequently enacted the Crime (Sentences) Act 1997 embodying these mandatory sentencing provisions).

Substantial changes to Party rhetoric – reflecting a move away from traditional social democratic principles – were immediately evident, as was internal party reorganisation and the creation of new policies that went beyond traditional Labour philosophical principles and which were capable of transcending the politics of the New Right associated with Thatcherism. New Labour’s (and, in particular, Tony Blair’s) approach to ‘law and order’ was influenced by developments in the United States during the 1990s.
