The Centre for Policy Studies is relaunching its pamphlets this week with a new bullesye-style logo and an old-fashioned colour style that reminds us of those great Penguin paperbacks.
The first in the new series of pamphlets is written by Lord (Maurice) Saatchi. Written in the style of a prosecuting barrister it makes the case that Labour has acted as the ‘Enemy of the People’ over the last ten years:
"The People charge New Labour on seven Counts:
- Conspiracy to make citizens dependent on the State.
- Conspiracy to force citizens to claim benefits to pay higher taxes.
- Incitement of poor people to pay more tax than rich people.
- Solicitation of multiple tax revenues by stealth.
- Attempt to obstruct the right of citizens to independence.
- Conspiracy to mesmerize and anaesthetise citizens.
- Attempt to conceal their true status as an enemy of the people.
On all Counts, the defendants are found: Guilty."
It will formally be published on Wednesday – when we’ll publish key extracts. You’ll be able to get a copy from the CPS website then. You won’t be disappointed.
