Is Iain Duncan Smith the archetypal Catholic politician?
He is pro-life, pro-family (typically "right wing") yet very sincere in his belief that social justice is a good thing and the effects of poverty need tackling (typically "left wing").
I have long found right-wing MPs to be pro-banks and don't care about communities, etc. whereas left-wing MPs seem to be screamingly pro-homosexual, pro-abortion etc.
What is a Catholic to do?
I would like the input of you, patient peruser of my humble blog.
What other politicians fit the Catholic mould? Ann Widdecombe? What about from the "left wing" side? Are there any genuine pro-life Labour MPs?
