Whose policy is this?

They argue for a society where power is vested in people and always devolved to the level at which it is most effective. Three core principles animate the liberal republic:
  • People have the freedom to live in the manner of their choosing and the power to determine their own version of a good life.
  • Institutions exist to serve individuals, not the other way around.
  • Equality is measured not by what you have, but by what you can do.
Sounds like something of Hannan and Carswell's, doesn't it? Well, believe it or not, it could well be post-Brown Labour's. I'm trying to get sight of the new pamphlet launched today by Demos, but Ben Brogan has the full story in the Telegraph.

If those things are in a Labour Party document, I'd want to read the small print pretty carefully.
