I am not slow to offer constructive criticism of my Party Leadership if I think they are going down to wrong route on a particular issue but I thought the PM’s speech yesterday summed up for me why I and millions of others suppor the Conservative Party. He set out in simple clear terms why it is that in order to help the poorest in Society you have to more than simply tax the already rich and wealthy and give their money to those who have less. Of course we as a Society have to provide for those who need help but welfare must not become a way of life. A lifestyle choice as some have called it.
Of course those who believe in Socialism will howl with objections but the fact is that more taxing and yet more borrowing can not be the answer to Britain’s problems. We need to compete on the World stage. It is this need to compete on the World stage which is why I believe we would be better off outside of the European Union (something Mr Cameron has yet to catch up with me on!). Taxing our entrepreneurs and risk takers will simply drive them away. If we are to have good quality public services we need as many high earners in the Country as possible!
