A libertarian view of the British political parties

I'll keep this brief.

  • The Labour Party is fundamentally opposed to liberty.
  • The Conservative Party doesn't believe in liberty, or anything else.
  • The Liberal Democrats should believe in liberty, but their policies fail to confirm this. A confused party.
  • The Libertarian Party is the only one worth supporting, but it's very young and very small.

The least bad result of the election currently in progress might be a Con-LibDem coalition. Ideally, they might veto each other's sillier ideas. Though things seldom work out ideally in politics.
