The word "conservative" in the UK means something very different to the US perception. Politically here in the UK the Conservative party has always been a p[arty for the wealthy & ruling class. They are deliberately divisive over Social welfare, State pensions, Wages & continue to maintain the obscene wealth gap between the Executives and Staff, & the Upper & lower classes by the subtle removal of incentive. There was even an insidious proposal from the Thatcher Think tank in 1982 that compulsory euthanasia at age 70 should be introduced to limit pension payments to the working classes. When elected tin 2010 they have done everything in their power to prevent social advancement by the insidious removal of entitlements to the disabled & to restrict further educational improvement unless it is payed for. If you read their policies by comparison with those of Nazi Germany & destruction of the Jews and all other "inferior" races Tory party policies against working people are straight out of the SS & Gestapo manuals.
no idea probably from ``conservation`` or conserve ,tin can
so a conservative person may refer to a person that has been dipped in a can or a barrel with cabbage or cucumbers and in such environment has developed a different perspective they have curly hair,bad breath and quite often verbal diarrhea
