Capitalists@Work has been running an interesting series on how the Labour government scorched the earth, not just in terms of slashing and burning the money, but also in terms of the legal landmines they left behind.
Not only profligate with someone else's money, but devious and vicious in making it as difficult as possible to pick up the pieces.
Of course, if the coalition was serious about the "great reform bill", it would be the work of a week to list every bit of legislation created by New Labour and quite simply repeal the fucking lot. If there was anything useful, it could almost certainly be re-drafted (better) and re-voted upon.
But, of course, they aren't. They're just a bunch of makeweights and dullards playing the game of politics, posturing as emptily and vacuously as the mad Scot or the cunto di tutti cunti did before him.
