Something I\’ve just realised about the Daily Telegraph\’s campaign, \”Hands off Our Land\”.
They\’re not in fact demanding that government take its hands off their land.
They\’re arguing that government should put its hands all over everyone else\’s land.
Far from saying \”It\’s my land, gerroff it\” they\’re saying \”that\’s his land don\’t let him do anything with it\”.
Takes me a long time to get there sometimes but eventually I do.
They\’re actually arguing for an increase on government power over the property of others.
