The article by Ed West argues that politicians are duty-bound to push unpopular policies if they believe them to be beneficial.
It quotes Kristian’s 2018 blog ‘Beware the Bregalitarians’ on the unpopularity of free market economics:
“Here’s a little home truth: if you are a free-marketeer in Britain in 2018, you are part of a small and unpopular minority. The vast majority of the British public disagree with you on virtually everything. There is majority support for a (re-) nationalisation of energy companies, the railways, water and bus companies.”
