Freedom, Responsibility and the State

On 22nd May, Politeia launched its next pamphlet, Freecom, Responsibility and the State: Curbing Over-Mighty Government.

The authors, a group of newly elected MPs (2010 intake) discussed their proposals for the direction of policy in which the powers of government, central and local, are reined in so that small  businesses, the energy supply, the justice system, and training and support for young people can respond to the demands of a changing UK.

Attending the launch were Jacob Rees-Mogg MP, Zac Goldsmith MP, David Mowat MP and Martin Vickers MP and other contributors (see below) to introduce their proposals and discuss their implications for the future of the UK.
