With suggestions of new toll roads and a system of paying upfront to see one’s GP, the shifting of rail financing from tax-funded subsidy to individual passenger, and an obsession with choice in all things, the Tory’s intend to create an economy in which everyone pays meanly for his own and no one else’s; in which, as the lady saith, ‘There is no such thing as society.’

In fact, their socio-economic vision for Britain is summed up in the whinge–boast catchphrase of Richard Herring: ‘I paid a pound!’

The Tories are creating an I-paid-a-pound! economy.
