George Osborne and David Laws (Osborne and Little as they’ve reportedly been tagged by their officials) have announced that Sarah Teather and other very important persons will no longer be entitled to ministerial cars to ferry them to and fro at the expense of hard-pressed taxpayers. Only those in the four great offices of state — the prime minister and his deputy, foreign secretary, chancellor and home secretary — will get their own car and chauffeur.
What is this? The eeeeevil toff Tories getting rid of the ministerial Jag and chauffeur? That the fair and equal Labour apparatchiks were so fond of?
Well, how can I possibly disapprove of anything that forces politicians to live a bit more like us? Another tiny step in the right direction!
