"Some of the best pieces of the 1997 manifesto cost practically nothing. Devolution, HRA, FOIA, Minimum wage and the NI Peace agreement were arguably the 5 greatest successes of the first Labour term in power and they cost practically nothing.......Below I list 13 socialist policies that would cost the state nothing."I can only agree, devolution and human rights did not cost the state a damn thing - but it sure cost the people something in the increased upkeep of more politicians and cost of the judicial system!
There is not one policy which Eoin Clarke proposes that would cost the state anything, but it sure would cost businesses, customers and the people in general something because of the provision of monitoring agencies/quangos etc. All these proposals are no more than an extension of the socialist/Cameron/Clegg ideology of 'enforced behaviour' and 'social engineering'!
Eoin Clarke's doctorate is unknown, but in common with all socialist who hold 'doctorates' one can only presume it is in the field of stupidity!
