Coalition makes Gordon look good.
To be fair, mendacity was a policy adopted even before the election. The Lib-Dems promised to cut university fees. David Cameron said, among other things, that planned cuts would not reduce frontline services. Michael Gove claimed he had "never said (that we will scrap the Educational Maintenance Allowance). We won't." There are dozens more such statements issued by third-rate politicians eager to get their hands on power.
We are now in a situation where badly-thought-out policies are hastily being imposed on the British public, by a deaf administration which can't think straight.
This Government is even managing to make Gordon Brown's last 12 months look good. ALAN DIXON, Newcastle
