Labour’s One Nation Policy Review Went Well Then

Labour are so proud of their new One Nation policy document that they have snuck it out online with absolutely no fanfare or promotion on a Thursday afternoon. Skimming through the 63 pages of dry wonkery, Guido did stumble upon one line summing it all up:

Honesty is the best policy…

One other word of advice: if you’re going to come up with a policy on “English language learning”, you should probably try to spell it correctly:

That went almost as well as Ed’s big speech on Monday…

You can read the whole thing here, if you really want to.

      You know the one where he wanted to kick the private sector out of public services(and presumably replace them with Unite stuffed publically funded services) The nex day he said that we had to reduce the deficit and cuts were required….

      The ramp is bad, but wtf is going on with the T’Graph ?

      I quote the opening para:

      ‘The mother of a disabled girl have criticised housing officials after they installed a £40,000 eyesore ‘slalom-style’ ramp over ten levels outside her home.’

      – ????

      Surely the mother in this case must have figured something was amiss when the ramp was being constructed. That kind of engineering doesn’t happen overnight.

    Key Policy Translated;
    1 Get some Herberts to clean up some canal banks led by older workers who have lost their jobs (2 birds one stone)
    2 Teach loads of non english speakers how to sign benefit forms
    3 Nothing fresh to say delete it all
    4 Free money for big business to trouser
    5 Make everybody work, more workers, more tax (unfortunately the new jobs will all be public sector)
    6 More free money for the bankers
    7 Gobbledygook and jobs for the boys (and girls)
