Owning up

I wonder if I detect any similarity between George W Bush promising an "Ownership Society" and Tony Blair promising an "Opportunity Society"? I wonder if, in each instance, the agent of our liberation will be the disappearance of entitlement to state benefits paid from taxation and their replacement - their empowering replacement - by private insurance schemes?

It's going to be an opportunity for somebody.
