Conservatives Should Get Out Of Business

Michael Den Tandt: F-35 project is ‘slowly unravelling’

The Conservative government’s controversial F-35 jet fighter project, plagued by delays, cost overruns and now economic turmoil in Europe, is at growing risk of being sharply curtailed or shelved — the defence minister’s protestations notwithstanding.

Why are the conservatives over extending themselves?  They are not business professionals, and now the results seem to be exposing that.  Procurement is difficult.  Leave that for business.  Government (if necessary) should be buying finished products. Companies should be paid for results, not efforts...then there would be no cost overruns.

I wish conservatives would take limited government seriously.

The best "Economic Action Plan" is to get out of the way.
