End of the Orange Book.

So we don’t have a small government, classically liberal, alternative at all.

Isn't Chris Huhne basically a libertarian with concern for the environment?

You equate Oaten-style authoritarianism with small government?!

Well he was the most small-government of the leadership candidates. Now its all social-democratic nitwits.
