a decline into local navel-gazing
Can we, can we, can we have better thinktanks already? I’m not so sure whether the worst bit is the fact they got the number wrong by a factor of four, or that they didn’t know that the National Rivers Authority doesn’t exist and hasn’t for 14 years, or just that it’s so obvious that the whole thing was based on the following reaction: “Whoo! Jetboats!!”
This project of not spending all my time Tory-slapping is going to be tough.
