Guess what. The consequences of "liberal" attitudes to children - ill discipline, lack of boundaries, poor educational achievement, delinquency and violence - are to be met by the introduction of the most illiberal policy since the end of the Second World War. At least, they will be if David Cameron gets his way. He wants to reintroduce conscription.
I think we can see the pattern emerging now...
leftist "liberal" policies
THAT ARE MET WITH
grotesquely illiberal policies
