One quote of the day comes along, closely followed by another. This is from Ivan Horrocks on the blog yesterday:
I’ve no doubt whatsoever that this government even more so than the previous one will be remembered in history as one of the most incoherent and deliberately incompetent policy makers ever. But then again, I suspect very few of those in government, or their supporters in general, care very much about that. If the UK Tory party’s version of disaster capitalism delivers the neoliberal nirvana they so long for their job will be done.
I would recommend the whole comment: Ivan is an expert on policy implementation. I think the comment is an objective assessment.
