wish they'd do this more often
not issue pointless guidelines for obsolete technologies, but literally: do nothing.
The government has been on holiday for the past month or two and will be for another month - or two. Has this lack of leadership caused any problems? No. Has anyone really, actually, noticed? Again, no. What would happen if they stayed on their (or other people's) yachts indefinitely? Probably nothing.
With over 5,500 statutes on the books (dating back over 800 years) we've got enough laws, thank you very much - we don't need any more. Government policies are many and diverse: it's just a case of selecting the one(s) that apply to any given situation, so that can be left to the paper-pushers to apply. Foreign policy - well for years that's been a mixture of doing bugger all and when that doesn't work, doing exactly what the americans tell us to - so that's covered, too.
Otherwise we're left with a bunch of self-interested individuals who do the pundit circuit: getting fawned over on breakfast telly, shouted at by Paxo and made a mockery of by the entire population - do we really need that?
In fact, the only real job of parliament is to raise (as in: increase) taxes. Personally. I'd be quite happy if they stopped doing that, too.
