Big government Conservatives

This is one example of why the Conservative Party is a party of big government. Cameron wants the government to pass a new "green" law.

As always, the marketplace can solve environmental issues and dilemmas. The enforcement of private propertys rights would deter people from polluting land. People could refrain from obtaining products that polluted the environment.

As for the Tories, well I shouldn't really expect any different, to be honest. If this tax comes into being, either under a Labour or future Conservative government, then extra bureaucracy is needed to implement this law. In essence, government would be enlarged to an even greater degree. The Conservatives and big government appear to go together like strawberries and cream.
