Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
They are the kind of social left that I can't find any comfort in: intrusive, controlling, deeply illiberal. Their solution to every social problem is to judicialize and penalize.

Sure, they have restored part of the funding of social programs that the Tories took away under Thatcher, but their approach to government is terrifyingly authoritarian.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
