Are You Kidding Me?

While there are encouraging signs that America's government is about to get smarter, here in the UK there are a couple of news stories to suggest that ours is just getting dafter.

The first one made me laugh out loud, the second just made me angry.

1.) The report says "in general Britain is a happy nation" with 70% expecting more positive than negative experiences.

2.) "I believe there is a demand, now, for cards - and as I go round the country I regularly have people coming up to me and saying they don't want to wait that long."

They just can't let this stupid idea go can they?

Despite the lack of any tangible evidence that they'll do anything but cause chaos and cost money we can ill afford. If Labour insist on foisting this white elephant on the country, I think they will be looking at a generation before they get back into power at least. It's got all the hallmarks of a poll tax in waiting and given that its likely to be a legacy burden, they may never be forgiven for it.

As for Jacqui Smith, she sounds like she's living in cloud cuckoo land with those remarks. Poor woman - she has never looked less that utterly bewildered since her appointment as home secretary.

Obamarama will turn out to be a pure Bam.
