Big government is watching you

The surveillance society and individual freedom

The Free Society and Big Brother Watch present: The battle against Big Government – join the debate!

The emergence of a Conservative-Liberal coalition government might now provide the opportunity for a politics based around individual freedom and responsibility, rather than government diktat. The new Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister use the language of liberty, but will they have the guts and determination to actually put Big Government into reverse gear?

The case for freedom was often ignored by the previous administration. This series of debates is an important contribution to ensuring that the new government listens rather more closely.

The second of these debates examines the sheer size of modern government. Suggesting it is one of the biggest problems facing Britain, and not just because of the
debt it generates. Politicians never tire of spending other people’s money, but as government gets ever bigger, they bully and control more and more, too.

The event will start at 6.00pm, with the debate taking place from 7.00pm to 8.00pm.

RSVP (acceptances only) to The Free Society or phone 01223 370156.

The reception is supported by Boisdale of Belgravia.
