This looks like it's not just a critique on government policy (and from the Daily Telegraph as well), but it also says something about the way this government is run! Why is the Chancellor spending nearly every day involved in the minutiae of policy and presentation when he should be hard at work in the Treasury and No.11 trying to reduce the economic crisis we are in? Why did the PM not quash Lansley's proposals last year? Why is he not working hard to smooth over relations between his Party and the Lib Dems over Lords reforms? Why does he have a Spin Doctor with no sense of antanne in dealing with Whitehall mandarins? A no of faults can be laid at Tony Blair's door in the way he conducted government, but it looks like that in some key areas Blair had more thoughtfulness and common sense in how government was run from No 10.
