Labour: Brown blusters but nothing changes
One of the more obvious things in parliament is that Labour say things will change, but often little changes.
One small example relates to shop lifting. There is a form of shop lifting allowance before anyone is prosecuted rather than cautioned. This means that in essence people can shoplift knowing they won't be prosecuted. The rhetoric of Labout is "talking tough", but the action is not there.
Gordon Brown claims to want accountable government. That means answering questions. However, they are refusing to answer questions about the costs of red boxes. They claim it is too expensive. Then they won't say how they worked out the costs.
Another good example is the use of "reasonable force" for self-defence. There is actually a good argument to give victims security against prosecution in certain situations. However, they reviewed the issue three years ago and decided to do nothing.
MRSA is another issue where they are unlikely to take the right action. (It involves reversing the contracting culture to maintain hygiene).
People will see through this at some stage.
