Back again ...

... for 2008 and straight in at the deep end.

Writing this morning in the Telegraph, fatty Heffer makes the case for smaller government.

He says: Whatever the motivation, the business of [government] intervention takes time, requires manpower, costs money, and is not - I would argue - always inevitably productive.

This is a curiously lukewarm statement from the otherwise admirably trenchant Heffer.

Surely, what he should have said is: Whatever the motivation, the business of intervention takes time, requires manpower, costs money, and is - I would argue - always inevitably counter-productive.

Which is why those who advocate more and bigger government, ie every member of Britain's useless, power-mad, half-witted government, are irredeemably thick.

That is a bit mild coming from the otherwise forthright Heffalump!
