About

Welcome to my blog.

You may have seen my name on various petitions on the 10 downing st website, or making comments on conservativehome.

Here in my blog I shall make comment of things I write there and also be detailling my brainstormed political ideas based on the news of the day or just what springs to mind – I might even just randomly ramble and rant, you may notice a lack of solutions.

Feel free to comment, but play nice 🙂

About me…

I think that fairness means treating everyone the same and not the political left’s view of fairness which is treat everyone differently to make them the same.

I think there is a missing party in this country.
Labour are double bad – Socially and Economically authoratitive.
Libdems are socially OK, but economically still attached to their SDP past (and they are a bit of a joke)
Conservative are economically ok, but still a bit authoritarian.

As I think that politics is mainly about economics and shouldn’t mess so much with people, I carry a conservative membership card.

A northerner, living in London.

I won’t be put off opinions by association…
eg. If a green measure like recycling makes sense, I won’t  disagree with it because green issues are associated with socialism – Recycling is about efficiency rather than anything to do with carbon.
.. or relevant to today, the abortion and embryo bill – My instinct tells me to approve it all because to be anti the bill would associate me with catholics. But i’ll look at it logically, and probably approve of it anyway!

Below I shall put some quotes that I want to bookmark….

These 2 are pretty similar…

John Stuart Mill:: “.. the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good, either physical or moral, is not a sufficient warrant. He cannot rightfully be compelled to do or forbear because it will be better for him to do so, because it will make him happier, because, in the opinions of others, to do so would be wise, or even right. These are good reasons for remonstrating with him, or reasoning with him, or persuading him, or entreating him, but not for compelling him, or visiting him with any evil in case he do otherwise.”

“Libertarian”:: “I am an advocate of individual rights and self-ownership. That means that an individual owns his his or her body and has the right to take whatever substances he or she wishes. The alternative is slavery – the state owns owns you body and what you do with it. That concept is abhorrent to many conservatives, not least because of its implications for morality and taxation (collective theft initiated through the ballot box).”

Prime minister Margaret Thatcher, talking to Women’s Own magazine, October 31 1987 “I think we’ve been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it’s the government’s job to cope with it. ‘I have a problem, I’ll get a grant.’ ‘I’m homeless, the government must house me.’ They’re casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There’s no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation.”
