If they're against it, I'm for it
Just seen some of the criticisms of Gordon Brown's speech, which make me like it more:
Iain Dale sneers at the idea of reducing carbon emissions by 80% and the 'impossible' aim of eliminating child poverty, and that listening to the speech makes him realise why George Osborne hates Gordon Brown.
Progress say that it was a shame that there wasn't more about how 'the government can no longer make the changes to Britain it seeks by governing by central dictat and that there needed to be a new contract between citizen and state.'
And any number of anonymous right-wing people on the internet are complaining about how all the new announcements are really bad because Gordon Brown has no right to steal their money which they've worked hard for by taxing them and spend it on other people. Which is especially classy when you think that what they are complaining about is being taxed so that, for instance, people suffering from cancer don't have to pay for prescriptions.
And in a similar vein, trying to stop children from suffering is 'evil' if it involves 'arbitratry taxation'.
