Owen Paterson tells the Daily Mail about it. The country is still borrowing £200,000 a minute, he says, then adding that "It's high time we Conservatives rediscovered the virtues of low taxation. Low taxes encourage effort, initiative and enterprise". We shouldn't be taxing ourselves out of trouble – we should be growing ourselves out of it. 

This is at the launch of his think-tank, UK2020, which will promote common-sense, small "c" conservative solutions to Britain's problems. The next speech is on 24 November, on the European Union – the first Monday after the Reckless by-election. If his energy speech is any guide, we should be in for an interesting time.
