Conservatives Against The Market

Alistair Darling’s announcement of a £600 billion bail out for RBS and Lloyds is accepted with glum indifference . Wither the free marketeers now?
Surely raises problems for all those with an ideological commitment to free markets as the left joyfully point out . I agree it does and Gordon Brown should be searching his black soul right now . You see the funny thing is that the New Labour are far more committed to abstract Free markets than Conservatives ever were . I do not have an ideological commitment to the “Free market” .
I believe in Protectionism at times , certainly of jobs I daily witness the chaos and danger of the free market in Insurance across the EU ( Scandal about to hit the papers BTW ). I am highly suspicious of internationalism I value institutions that control capitalism and in general the social structures that free markets can attack. . I value the spiritual and social resources of the Nation along with its wealth and any dogma is to be viewed askance until tested by experience .
Brown thought he could have a high tax economy and pay for it by letting his Banking chums rip internationally . I think in his insane hubristic arrogance he thought he could ride the markets and deliver a greater Sweden to the British as well.He is not a conservative man he is a chancer . I often notice people who have never been near a market commenting with great confidence about the state of thwordl when they could not sell a bag of chips .
This is typical of the left . Giving them the market is like giving the Indians Whiskey with predictable results. Woo woo woo woo woo wooo bump .

You are right, Mr M: Brown comes to 'free markets' with all the blind, ignorant enthusiasm of the convert

the example I like to give of the more intelligent, knowing, conservative approach is this one.

Funny you mention it. Saw John McFall topless and throwing bundles of Treasury papers and cabinet minutes labeled "Iraq - Don not open until 2079," onto a raging bonfire.

"Sending up smoke signals John ?" I asked cheerily.

"Something like that he said," reaching for a large stack of papers and data discs labeled "Lloyds banking group - outlook for 2010"
