For and against more regulation in the same speech - Cameron's latest say-anything-to-get-elected posture

I came across these interesting bits from a speech by David Cameron to the Council for the Protection of Rural England, made yesterday.

In it he makes the case for less regulation. And then he goes on to make the case for, errr....more regulation.

Here's what he said:

The third way in which our present regime has undermined social value is through over-regulation.

And then he went on to say:

But government is not only failing to impose sensible new regulations that would protect the countryside. They are even getting rid of existing ones.

You can see the full speech, if you really want to, at Cameron speech.
