With one hand behind his back

In today’s Daily Telegraph, David Cameron says he will not rest until people have been put in control of their choices and chances in life. “Brick by brick, we’re tearing down the big state,” he boasts. “I want us to end once and for all the closed state monopoly where central government decides what you get, and how you get it”.

This seems more than a little disingenuous to me. Clearly, the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing (actually it’s probably the other way round). How can the Prime Minister claim to be dismantling central bureaucracy to empower people locally when he is allowing the EU bureaucracy monster to stretch its tentacles into every aspect of our lives?

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
