Over the last session of parliament we have seen a remarkably thin legislative agenda from the government. Swathes of parliamentary time have been left unfilled and the bills that they did produce have been chaotic, badly drafted and badly managed. I have calculated that since the last Queen's speech, the government have u-turned on average once every seven sitting days. If No10 briefing is accurate, they are u-turning on this Queen's Speech before it's even been delivered by dropping minimum alcohol pricing, plain cigarette packaging and their register of lobbying interests.
Yesterday, at the so-called "rose garden re-launch", a worker put a question to the Prime Minister and his Deputy that told more than it asked. Due to the vast differences between Conservative and Liberal ideologies concocting what the questioner called "watered down policies", he asked what could be done over the next three years.
