I have some hope that this new Con-Lib coalition may well end up being one of the most classically liberal governments we’ve had in a long time. But not a lot of hope.
What I suspect will happen is that the government will have to make some very unpopular decisions. Lefty Lib Dem members will tear up their membership cards and those who voted Lib Dem to keep the Tories out will start voting Labour. The coalition will collapse by next year and we’ll have a voting system where an ignorant tyrannical majority elects centre-left governments from here to eternity.
I’m a 30 year old entrepreneur. I’m about to get married and start a family. I want my children to grow up in a society that understands the virtues of liberty. I’m thinking of my exit strategy.
This is a genuine and serious question: Where should I be heading?
