The House of Commons public administration committee, under the chairmanship of Dr Tony Wright, started yesterday an inquiry into "good government" – in, of all places, the Thatcher Room in Portcullis House.

This, according to the genial Wright, was an opportunity to stand back from the "daily grind" to take a "reflective view" about "how we do government". There were three main issues said Nick Raynsford, the first of four witnesses with "deep ministerial experience", the other three being Kenneth Clarke, David Blunkett and Peter Lilley. Those issues, said Raynsford were "administrative, political and cultural".

"Tumbrel wheels"? Out of your mouth and into God's ear.

I feel safe knowing that K Clarke is looking after our constitution and democracy.

"Tumbrel wheels"?

One can only hope.

That being said, isn't NOW the ideal time to revolt. One can use the "ECONOMIC CRISIS" to excuse one's behaviour and reclaim sovereignty. This does not mean becoming protectionist, rather setting ones rudder in a direction while the Titanic drifts on; a chance to mix metaphores during a time of EUrospeak!

No EUrorey here!

The political machines have the whole process sewn up. There is little or no hope for anyone outside the political machines and so we are left with the present oligarchical from of government.
