Friday a good day for daft ideas?
The government’s been working like a smoothly-run machine this week (makes a change) and have announced several controversial things all at once. This morning we have:
- Rod Eddington’s transport report which suggests road charging rather than high-speed rail links
- England’s smoking ban will start on July 1st 2007
- Sex-offenders will face compulsory lie-detector tests
- Trials are to being of genetically-modified potatoes in Britain
and yesterday they proposed sending Britons to the moon, keeping life peers, building more City Academies, and Wales’ First Minister Rhodri Morgan stuck the boot in by declaring the end of New Labour.
Given the above, I think this may be wishful thinking on Rhodri’s part.
