Quote of the month...

... comes from Nick Clegg, in his Grauniad interview on the Protection of Freedoms Bill (a tip of the horns to Guido). [Emphasis mine.]
"I need to say this—you shouldn't trust any government, actually including this one. You should not trust government—full stop. The natural inclination of government is to hoard power and information; to accrue power to itself in the name of the public good."

The only pity is that Nick actually needs to say it...

I'd say the real pity is that, although he realises this, he won't do anything about it. Not that he can, I suppose, being only a door-mat for Camoron.

Still, the optimist in me (a very tiny voice these days...) thinks it could be a step in the right direction.

The Protection of Freedoms Bill?

Is that the bill that abolishes the House of Commons, all of the political Parties, and Ed Balls?

Clearly only my government can show a clear lead to the country
