The Mid Beds MP writes for the Times & Citizen every month
I believe that my role in Parliament is, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan, to get government “off our backs”. A large state intrudes in people’s lives and a direct consequence of that is a reduction in personal freedom.
Big government becomes unwieldy and impossible to manage, leading to contradictory policy and mistakes. Government gets things wrong and the more government there is the more mistakes it will make.
