Just read the front page ATS thread Stymied Obama aims to bypass Congress
discusses deregulation and 'lifting people up into the middle class' in response to a 'budget fiasco' in 2013, and realised that something curiously
similar was announced today in Britain.
Namely, David Cameron, our 'beloved' Prime Minister, has decreed that he is ditching 80,000 pages of regulations affecting small-medium businesses,
and he cites a few ridiculous examples relating to hedgerows and window size in new buildings to get the crowd behind the movement.
It may be totally unrelated to the American announcement, but knowing the way the world works, part of me wonders whether the anonymous comment at the
Standard link to story
is right? The comment concerns a recent gathering of the 'Elite' at Davos, and suggests that Cameron (and perhaps Obama
too?) were sent home with a list of instructions to fulfil, concerning deregulatory actions.
Either way, it seems curious to me that Obama and Cameron are both talking about bypassing checks and balances on the same day. They are both
starting small and spinning it like a dream - but where will it end?
Cheers all, and have a good day.
