Tory manifesto a promise of inaction to undermine role of government
“But what this means is that the absence of policy in this [Tory] manifesto is not accidental. Nor is it solely to do with the paralysis of Brexit. Rather, it’s choice. What we have is a generation of Tories who seek office not to use it.”Richard Murphy
Not to use it, argues Richard Murphy in an article on on Tax Research UK, because the people concerned are not good enough, that, as in the Peter Principle, they have risen in the government hierarchy through promotion until reaching a level of respective incompetence, and that these Tory politicians are more motivated by the subsequent rewards than by public duty.
