Just read this somewhere about the possible next Government
"The safest government is a weak government. That way they have to take other views into account, pass less legislation in a country overflowing with laws and regulations, and can't just hector the country and do as they wish, because they know best. In other words it lessens the chance of arrogance setting in as with Blair and Brown [and Thatcher, let's not forget her just yet]. I for one am sick of being lectured by a succession of half witted posturers who can't think their way out of a paper bag."
A good point this, I think. Don't let Dave see it though - he'll want to go it alone.
