I've got to say that at least US conservatives are inclined to try and create a trade off, you may receive less services from government but you wont have to pay taxes as a consequence.
I'm still amazed that the UK conservatives were able to do this and plan to continue to do this, although since the eighties the trend among politicians of all parties is to become more and more bold in their exemplifying of the "obviously in this racket for personal gain and glory" principle.
I am ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN that government has got to be the only thing that people in the UK are content to pay an infinitely increasing price for while getting less and less and less in return for that money. If any other supplier of goods and services behaved like this you'd not support them but welcome to the strange and getting stranger world of UK politics.
Also, the present administration wasnt elected, its a little like that embarrassing Bush term no one likes to talk about in the US, in the UK the losers combined and found they had more votes than the remaining party hence the ConDem (conservatives and liberal democrats) coalition.
