The abolition of ‘Broken Britain’

The abolition of ‘Broken Britain’ | openDemocracy: What does this say about Cameron’s Conservatives? Fundamentally, ‘Broken Britain’ represents a regression, not the progressive ‘born-again’ model Cameron claims to embrace. The invocation of sickness as a stigma is the distinctively conservative element that screams of rank televangelical charlatanism; it is a trick to which Cameron’s recent Conservative predecessors did not stoop, but may be seen as a classic hallmark of cultish fundamentalism. It is used to justify government irresponsibility; in effect, it is the relinquishment of any belief in the role of government in society.
