I don’t usually offer on my blog a mere quotation from someone else, but I was so struck by a line from Janet Daley (Sunday Telegraph, Oct 14th) that I feel moved to share it with you:
Cameron and Romney now have a remarkably similar message: we do not want to protect the wealthy, we want to extend wealth. Whereas the parties of the Left in the US, Britain and Europe say they want to protect the poor, but what they are really doing is extending poverty.
So true. Though I wonder if Cameron really understands it, or regards it merely as a trendy sound-bite. But it’s not what he says. It’s what he does. I look forward to seeing his policies designed to extend wealth.
