Quote of the day

The New Statesman gets lost in labels:
No liberal globaliser or free-market ideologue, Mrs May believes in social cohesion and a strong state as well as reducing immigration. Her language is communitarian and softly nationalist. Her government is not neoliberal: more accurately, it is post-Thatcherite. From the beginning, Mrs May has been clear that she would wish to regulate as well as intervene in markets that are perceived to be rigged or broken. Ed Miliband would approve. You could say that she is Britain’s first post-liberal prime minister.
Well yes, you could.  But would it add to the quantum of human knowledge or understanding?

Regulation and intervention in markets ... her great friend, Mr. Trump, doesn't think so.
