It seems to me that a lot of political views hinge on one aspect.
Should the state be larger or smaller?
By "larger" I mean taking a larger amount of money in taxes and using it to do more and employ more people.
By "smaller" I mean that individuals and companies keep more money and spend it themselves.
We have a lot of history and a lot of different models over the world to study so surely we should be able to have a rational debate about which is best...
Personally, I think that the UK has the balance about right althought a little smaller would suit me.
