David Cameron said in his conference speech.
"I'm not here to defend privilege, I'm here to spread it."
Privilege - is commonly used to mean "a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group"
It is a sad day when the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom doesn't know what a word means.

The reason for the existence of the Conservative Party has always been to defend privilege. A few Conservatives feel privilege ought to be justified in some way - e.g for 'wealth creators' but for most of them the existence of a hierarchy is a good in itself.
Middle English: via Old French from Latin privilegium 'bill or law affecting an individual', from privus 'private' + lex, leg- 'law'
