I dunno...he explained "old school conservatism" or something like that, more along the lines of Red Toryism. I think we need to build a new conservatism, that embrasses change and that accepts sometimes, the social has to be political.

The original neo-conservatives were Democrats who saw the error of their ways. In that sense, we do need more people of the left to realize just how mistaken they are.

I believe this is a reflection of how political parties evolve and the language struggles to keep up.

Originally, Liberals were the "laisse faire" free enterprisers who believed in liberty but socialists have infected and hijacked the Liberal parties. Neo-Liberals are those who are rejecting socialism and rediscovering classic Liberal values... which are now championed by the Conservatives!

It should also be stated that Conservatives in the old days were protectionists, and thus were against free trade (both in Britain and Canada).

Absolutely... Now, in the US, the Dhimmicrats are the protectionists. Here in Canada, the Liberals were against NAFTA until they saw economic benefits and then they grudgingly became free traders...
