Why must we only copy "progressive" policies from the States?

Heather MacDonald's "Restoring the social order" in City Journal says it all. If it works, do it for Chrissake!

Why, oh why oh why do the Brits only ever imitate US policies that do not work?


  1. Putting criminals in jail is "not nice" and creating expensive workshops for struggling single mothers is "nice". The root of many counter productive policies seems to be the constant chase for the floating voters, who want "niceness".

  2. Oh, I do so agree. I use naïs to emphasize it.
