They should all be committed - to the loony bin!!
I'm waiting for them to introduce air tax so they can tax the very air we breath. Wouldn't surprise me if they fined the heavy breathers, smokers for contaminating the air waves lol
Just think of all those shopkeepers situated next door to bakers who would have bought a microwave oven so that a customer could have come from the bakers to warm up their pasty (and hopefully spend some cash in their shop).
What's better? They don't u turn on a mistake and carry on regardless.. or they do u turn? Surely better they don't? People moan when they (generic they for politicians/government) do something they think is wrong and when they say "ok we're not going to do it", people moan because they made a u turn!
Ray you make a very good point. Making a u-turn is not really listening to the public and then changing your mind based upon reasoned argument, it is more about quickly changing an ill-devised policy that might lose votes. Clearly defined policies are a must accompanied with a belief that the policies are right and no other option is better.
