The Same May Happen

How different is Britain’s new Prime Minister, Theresa May, from her predecessors? Not much, says Dalrymple:

Mrs. May, like all mainstream politicians in Europe today, is a social democrat, a social engineer, and a statist. She is more open about this than her predecessors… The usual genuflections in the direction of personal effort and responsibility notwithstanding, she is still a knobs-and-lever politician: She will twist what she thinks are the right knobs and pull the right levers, and supposedly the result will be a more equal but also a more entrepreneurial society.

Yes, well… good luck with that.
