New Labour - New B*******ks
It would be so nice if the people in charge of this fine country could try listening to real scientists in their actual field of study, engineers in their respective specialisms, and other people WHO ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT.
New Labour's approach to every problem so far has been to throw unsuitable, incomplete, unspecified and poor technology or law at it.
NHS computer system? Never properly specified, so massively late and overbudget. Don't think it works even now.
ID card concept? Makes impossible claims while eroding yet more civil rights.
Millenium Dome? Well, the roof comes off in three years time - just after it re-opens containing stuff that people might actually want to go to in sufficient numbers to make it worthwhile.
- It already looks very tatty and leaks in places.
The "Don't protest outside Parliament act" didn't acheive the one thing it was drafted to do - that guy is still protesting. In fact, the only things it acheived was insane amounts of paperwork for the police, and a pretty funny comedy show on Radio 4
Roll on the General Election.
Can we have one now please, before Mr Brown manages to tattoo barcodes on all of us?
(And please - Lib Dems, Conservatives - give us something sane to vote for.)
