A great piece from Matthew Parris, who lampoons faux conservatives who want us to spread ourselves around our old colonies for old times sake. Get emotional, he says, just don't pretend its conservatism. Conservatism is about the national interest and that alone.

Although I tend to think self determination is important (if the residents don't want us in then we should have a good reason for staying) and I think that Northern Ireland will be a nightmare if we hand it over to the South without giving the Ulstermen a chance to run their own show, I give it 8 out of 10.
