Sir Keir Starmer has written an essay, presumably whilst in detention for some form of micro aggression. His key points are as follows but, for some reason best known to himself and probably to do with the subconscious knowledge that the welfare of this country requires him to remain in Opposition, one has to plough through 12,000 words of dreck prior to this enlightenment:
- We will always put hard-working families and their priorities first.
- If you work hard and play by the rules, you should be rewarded fairly.
- People and businesses are expected to contribute to society, as well as receive.
- Your chances in life should not be defined by the circumstances of your birth – hard work and how you contribute should matter.
- Families, communities and the things that bring us together must once again be put above individualism.
- The economy should work for citizens and communities. It is not good enough to just surrender to market forces.
- The role of government is to be a partner to private enterprise, not stifle it.
- The government should treat taxpayer money as if it were its own. The current levels of waste are unacceptable.
- The government must play its role in restoring honesty, decency and transparency in public life.
- We are proudly patriotic but we reject the divisiveness of nationalism.
