Rowland Gave Tories a Million to "Set the People Free"

David Rowland, the property developer tycoon says of the million he has bunged the Tories this year:

“I made the donation as a result of my passionate concern for liberty and the economic future of Britain. We need fresh ideas, national renewal and above all a Government that sets the people free. I feel strongly that the Conservatives under the leadership of David Cameron are the party that will deliver that. They are the best hope for this country’s future.”

Guido is hard pressed to think of any Tory policies that will set the people free. The only outstanding libertarian commitment they have made is to abolish ID cards.  Cameron rarely speaks about freedom, the Tories sound more like technocratic managerialists than freedom fighters…
