The End of Week Quote

Prof. Tim Congdon
''Well-intentioned politicians are of two kinds, those who want to help people directly and those who want to free people so that indirectly they can help themselves. The distinction may sound like a quibble, but it is not.''
The quote is from Professor Tim Congdon, the eminent economist published in The Daily Telegraph this week. The well-argued article supporting UKIP and saying that he will not support David Cameron remains leader of the Conservative Party.
Whether Professor Congdon actually joins UKIP as George Jones and Brendan Carlin say in The Daily Telegraph or not remains to be seen, however if he continues to write well-argued articles of the kind on the op-ed pages, he will be something of a threat to the current 'modern compassionate' Conservative Party.
