Melanie Phillips on British political situation
A must read article:
People feel the democratic compact between voters and government has been shattered. They are fleeced by record levels of taxation, only to see billions poured down various sinks.
Politicians are interfering more and more in their lives, telling them not just how to behave but how to think, rewarding the irresponsible and punishing the dutiful – while failing to deliver the absolute essentials of providing security against crime and conserving the nation’s identity.
In other words, it’s not just Brown who has failed, but the whole so-called progressive agenda which has been shown to be a sham.
The public want to know what the alternative is. Well, that’s something I believe it’s much more spread than throughout England.
