During the early 1980s Conservatives objected to what they believed were excesses in?

Question asked by: knowitall

Excesses in taxation and impingements on freedom with the imposition of the so-called nanny state.

In general conservatives believe in low tax, less government interference unless where needed, and are tough on issues such as crime and law and order.

Meanwhile Labour politicians are more likely to emphasise the welfare state, the interference of government in more areas of our life and, it seems, endless bureaucracy and death by civil servants. Additionally taking 25% of council tax to pay for civil service pensions whilst all those in the private sectors will end up with nothing - it's a stitch up!
