The General election – will it make a difference?


With the Conservatives expected to win the election we can expect little change in policy, although the mishaps with the election campaign suggest new policies might emerge once the dust has settled.

The big problem is that all the parties have signed up to a pro-growth agenda, with the exception of the Greens to some extent. We can expect more focus on economic growth – whether it is good or bad; an underlying assumption that population growth is good and linked to both of these the assertion that building more houses is essential.

The problem of man-made climate change received minimal attention a rather worrying feature of the campaign as it is the biggest threat to society.

What is required is a radical set of alternative policies but that may be wishful thinking!
