The thinkers Bunting elects to this "red Tory" tradition are William Cobbett, John Ruskin, G.K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc.
Cobbett and Ruskin are fascinating figures who could - and should - be claimed by both left and right. Chesterton was a Liberal of sorts, as is seen in his widely quoted:
I still believe in liberalism today as much as I ever did, but, oh, there was a happy time when I believed in liberals.
Later. Read David Boyle on red Toryism too.
