Lembrar a diferença

por Francisco Mendes da Silva, em 30.04.07

 

«In this one sentence, the Prime Minister captures perfectly the fundamental philosophical difference between us. He believes that state initiatives and taxpayers' cash can ''cure'' the "nature of society". Anyone who still believes either that Mr Blair is a ''closet Tory'', or that I am anything other than a Conservative, should stick that quotation on their fridge door.

 

(...)

 

Labour's intentions may have been good, but its approach failed because its only instruments were taxpayers' money and mechanical central control.

 

(...)

 

We cannot address social problems merely with state solutions. Government has a role to play in setting the framework of law and incentives that encourage the right behaviour. But the best thing that the state can do is to help build the independent institutions of a responsible society - strong families and strong communities.»

 

David Cameron, no Telegraph de hoje.

É por estas e por outras que eu jamais serei conservador.
