Radical U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron Take Power from Central Government and Give to the People

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron Oct 6, 2010 speech. What a speech, see

In it he said: "We are the radicals now, breaking apart the old system with a massive transfer for power, from the state to citizens." "Not about a bit more power for you and a bit less power for central government - it's a revolution."

Cameron also said:
• "An emergency budget to balance the books in five years.
• For our new entrepreneurs - employees' tax reduced.
• when more and more countries have or want nuclear weapons, we will always keep our ultimate insurance policy, we will renew our nuclear deterrent based on the Trident missile system.
• the man responsible for the Lockerbie bombing, the biggest mass murderer in British history, set free to get a hero's welcome in Tripoli. No. It was wrong, it undermined our standing in the world, and nothing like that must ever happen again.
• Labour [party] left us with massive debts, the highest deficit, overstretched armed forces, demoralised public services, endless ridiculous rules and regulations and quangos and bureaucracy and nonsense.
• The old way of doing things: the high-spending, all-controlling, heavy-handed state, those ideas were defeated. Statism lost ... society won. That's what happened at the last election and that's the change we're leading.
• It's about government helping to build a nation of doers and go-getters, where people step forward not sit back, where people come together to make life better.
• Yes you, Labour. You want us to spend more money on ourselves, today, to keep racking up the bills, today and leave it to our children - the ones who had nothing to do with all this - to pay our debts tomorrow? That is selfish and irresponsible.
• Many government departments will have their budgets cut by, on average, 25% over four years. That's a cut each year of around 7%.
• make sure kids from the poorest homes go to the best schools not the worst, recognise marriage in the tax system and, most of all, make sure that work really pays for every single person in our country
• Taking more money from the man who goes out to work long hours each day so the family next door can go on living a life on benefits without working - is that fair?
• if you can work, but refuse to work, we will not let you live off the hard work of others.
• a new enterprise allowance that gives money and support to unemployed people who want to start their own business.
• We're going to start by taking power away from central government and giving it to people.
• More freedom for local councils to keep more of the money when they attract business to their area, to finance big new infrastructure projects and to run new services.
• More power for neighbourhoods to keep local pubs open, stop post offices from closing, to run local parks, to plan the look, shape and feel of their area.
• This is not about a bit more power for you and a bit less power for central government - it's a revolution.
• if anyone tells you that all we need to improve our hospitals and schools or keep our streets safe is more money, tell them, been there, done that and it didn't work.
• Saying to the people who work in our public services - set up as a co-operative, be your own boss, do things your way.
• Saying to business, faith groups, charities, social enterprises - come in and provide a great service.
• There is such an appetite out there for people to play their part. Our job is to help them, encourage them, break down the barriers that stop them.
• A government that believes in people, that trusts people, that knows its ultimate role is not to take from people but to give, to give power, to give control, to give everyone the chance to make the most of their own life and make better the lives of others."
