There are two great risks to the free people of England. The first is the transformation of England from a dynamic wealth generating marketplace into a stagnant environment living off past glories.
The comparison is to the fading Stately Homes that pepper our country side -- build on great wealth by the rich without a thought to cost, because there was plenty more where that came from, in the same way England has been build on the great wealth generated from centuries of dynamic industry. Now, however, many of the stately homes are fading relics, owned by the poor aristocracy who have inherited the assets, but not the wealth generating abilities of their forebears. Smilarly over a decade of Labour government have left England in danger of being in the same position -our wealth creating abilities stripped and not replace, while the valuable assets are sold off leaving us with a fading husk of past wealth that is expensive to maintain. No one can deny that spending money is fun, but if it isn't being replaced with new income, then once the fun ends it ends forever.
