Contra Corbynomics: Why we should be incredulous towards economic statism

People are themselves. They are not objects to be pushed around by the State, which is what the new Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, proposes. This is why the British public shouldn’t be seduced by Corbyn’s vision of economic statism in which individualism, hard work and enterprise are demonised by expensive and controlling government.

The Queen's Speech

When we came to office in 2010, Britain was on the brink. Our task was urgent: to rescue our economy from the mire. With that economy now going in the right direction, we are once again on the brink - but this time, on the brink of something special. We have a golden opportunity to renew the idea that working people are backed in this country; to renew the promise to those least fortunate that they will have the opportunity for a brighter future; and to renew the ties that bind every part of our United Kingdom. We now have the mandate to deliver that renewal. And it starts with today's Queen's Speech: a clear programme for working people, social justice, and bringing our country together - put simply, a One Nation Queen's Speech from a One Nation Government.

Why We Need A Conservative Majority Government

Every time Labour comes to power, they spend and borrow too much money and undermine British enterprise, leaving the country in a mess. Every time we return to power, the Conservatives are left with the task of cleaning up the mess left by Labour. Thus, Winston Churchill in 1951, and Margaret Thatcher in 1979, set us on the road to recovery after having to introduce reforms which Labour Governments refused to enact.
