No Think Tories

Sad to see that neither Heffer nor Finkelstein can bring themelves to think of the concept of 'protectionism' as a means of preventing their children being paupered.
If your home's at risk from burglary, you protect it with an alarm. If your car's at risk from theft, you protect it with a deadlock.
So if your economy's at risk, why can't you protect it with a tariff? Because some deadhead academic economist or newspaper shill says it isn't a good idea?

Pity. We did have a vote to join the EU - didn't we?
