Proper Role of the State

After the wearisome era of meddling and ineffective initiatives introduced by Gordon Brown, we need a new vision of the proper role of the State. He clearly believed that there was no part of ordinary British life that would not benefit from the heavy hand of government intervention. This has resulted in a weak, submissive, risk-averse culture tormented by the lunacies of such toxic legislation as health and safety. The State should be smaller and less intrusive, concentrating on the core functions of law and order, defence, health, education and infrastructure. We also need to slim down our vast, dysfunctional public sector still stuck in the lost world of the 1970s with its strikes, absenteeism, falling productivity and low morale.
