"We do not believe in untrammelled free markets. We reject the cult of selfish individualism. We see rigid dogma and ideology not just as needless but dangerous"

Theresa's manifesto.

I think I will wait and see - words are cheap

Never has Proth's 'least worst' been more true

Election seems to be anyone with a chance but Corbyn or Farron

Worryingly I happen to agree with every word. Quite wtf Proth is doing supporting a party with those attitudes baffles me....

There is no party with a classical liberal manifesto, unfortunately. For now Thatcherism is dead.

Those of us who believe in markets (apart from the laissez faire) have never believed in "untrammelled" free markets which err towards oligopoly, which in turn restricts competition and choice. (Banking being the worst example in the UK).

This is the most left wing Tory Manifesto since Ted Heath.

If she doesn't pursue a hard line on Brexit how is the right of the party going to take it all? We maybe hearing a lot from the 1922 committee.

Indeed they do. Terrified of markets, just like every other party.

Where do libertarians stand on the stopping of freedom of movement?
