Time to toughen up

Conservatives will never turn back the leftist tide swamping our society unless they adopt the techniques the Left uses to push its agenda down our throats. Conservatives, being decent and reasonable, often assume that the Left will be reasonable too, if only everyone can sit down and talk things over. Dream on. If conservatives want to avoid living in a leftist dystopia they must stop pussy-footing around and get tough.

That’s not going to happen of course, not yet anyway. Conservatives are too insulated by the belief that democracy will ensure that everything comes right in the end to appreciate the full extent of the damage caused by leftist legislation at all levels of our over-governed nation, from the daily narrowing of our freedoms to the raid on our pockets by ‘clean energy’ fanatics. If power bills went up by 40 per cent in some countries there’d be riots. Here we just pay up.
