We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Gordon Brown’s budget

After watching the thrilling news from Iraq… back down to earth with a thud:

Chancellor Gordon Brown’s budget… the long version of Brown’s ‘New Labour’ drivel can be found here.

The short form:

  1. More money for defence and security (the state’s only legitimate role)

  2. More socialist ‘social fairness’ and less economic freedom

  3. More regulation and a clamp down on theft-avoidance schemes

  4. More wasteful public spending and a big injection into the idiotic NHS

  5. More tax on sinful things because the state knows what is best for you

  6. Britain’s economy is growing and Gordon is going to continue chucking spanners into the machinery until it ain’t

Oh joy.
