    Above all, do no harm.

    I’m not sure that I want the government to have a ‘strategy for growth’. (Many of us remember the fiasco of picking winners’ in the 1970s.) Just get out of the way.

    Reduce the burden of taxation; reduce the mountains of regulation (including from the EU); free up small employers to get on with their business, instead of all the nonsense of employment tribunals; allow schools to discriminate by ability in their admission policies; etc. etc.
