I am pleased the government has retreated on the sale of forests.
I note with interest the comment made by a Downing Street adviser that:
We just did not think
Well it is time to think.
Time to think about the impact of reform on the NHS - which will be destroyed by Lansley's proposals.
Time to think about one million young unemployed people.
Time to think about the voluntary sector - where someone told me yesterday the situation is not just bad, but dire because of cuts in local authority support, and few organisations have owned up to it yet.
Time to think about real banking reform.
Time to think about an alternative economic policy.
But will they do it?
Or will they just not think?
