    Sounds like a promising improvement on the current diet of “Freedom, Fairness and Responsibility” (which would be fine if genuine).

    Freedom – to have a bit more personal privacy and free(r) speech, but not to hold a referendum on EU membership.
    Fairness – a clear warning that economic intervention in the name of centrally-planned redistribution will continue.
    Responsibility – a clear warning that, whatever you have left after the “Fairness” tax raid on your resources, will have to cover more of your expenses.

    I can think of nothing more likely to put the masses off smaller government than the prospect of having to pay for more out of their own pockets *after* they’ve finished paying for the last round of big government/corporatist failures *and* the next round of redistribution.
