Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yet another step back towards Dickensian conditions packaged as a supposedly positive reform. I once wrote:

A conservative is one who sells the mistakes of yesterday as solutions for tomorrow.

What conservatives want to conserve is the illusion of a past golden age, so that all the problems that were hidden behind the facades can be ignored.

The only thing conservative politicians want to conserve is their power - secured and expanded by all means.

The only moral all conservatives follow: forgive the sins of fellow conservatives.
