An Englishman's Castle: The State we are in(commentary on The British State)

An Englishman's Castle: The State we are in
An Englishman's Castle Blog has an interesting article from Martin Kelly. Kelly laments the state of English society and the economy. He states in part:

...the liberals control social policy with a rod of iron. Children are presented with images of sexuality from the earliest age - politicians express shock when they start having sex young. Intercourse is presented as an entertainment without consequences - the Sunday Telegraph has recently reported that the taxpayer-funded British Pregnancy Advisory Service is sending women to Spain in order to obtain abortions that are illegal in the UK due to the stage of their pregnancy. The debris of this ruinous liberalism wanders round our towns at all hours of the day and night. The institutions of the state, provided by the citizen for their own protection, do not function unless in this liberal atmosphere. The citizen is not permitted to protect his home without having to make a lawyerly judgment in a split-second decision in combat against intruders, in the middle of the night. So paralysed is the police service by its institutional liberalism that it cannot keep the streets of Nottingham and Birmingham free from a gun culture that would shame LA's ganglands.

Click his link to the Washington dispatch for whole article. It will be interesting to see how UK politics develops over the next year. There was quite a vote against an another Regional parliament or assembly last week. It seems that the Brits might think ,after having to have govt workers make decisions for them in Westminster and Brussels, that more govt is not the answer. We shall see.
