[...] Bases of traditional Conservative power, such as the fabled entrepeneur, are sacrificed to the exigencies of the corporate multinational, to Tesco and Costa, and to the rationales of the market. [...] Neoliberalism is first and foremost an ideology of enterprise, and all objects come under its purview, including the nation. Construed as competitive, cost-effective engines of pure accumulation, the nation too is then reimagined as enterprise - a visualisation with overtly colonial overtones. It is the ghost of the EEast India Company that haunts Liam Fox's desire for Empire 2.0.
