John Prescott's top fifty. {4}

31. Introduced child tax credit giving more money to parents {Must we do this? It has been a job creating exercise with many, many flaws. Raising tax thresholds would have achieved the same at a fraction of the cost and muddle.Its a disaster}

32. Scrapped Section 28 and introduced Civil Partnerships {Couldn't really not do it. 28 was a daft bit of old right reactionary nonsense, and if you hadn't introduced the farcical racial hatred act, you would have got a credit.}

33. Brought over 1 million social homes up to standard

{ but the record on housebuilding is dire. Less than

30, 000 a year. What was immigration running at again? 200,000 pa? The equity loan scheme barely manages to help 4,000 people a year. And the military got zip for their housing stock. Partial credit, and that's generous.}

34. Free school milk for five, six and seven-year-olds in Wales {UK figures not available. No credit. + the lunchtime allowance that you jumped on with Jamie Oliver hasn't risen with food price inflation. The scheme will collapse unless action is taken}

35. Banned fox hunting {whoopee do! Few cared, few still care. Hunting with dogs goes on much as before. What a legacy. Why not add banned conkers too!}

36. Cleanest rivers, beaches, drinking water and air since the industrial revolution { I've no idea, but from today's Telegraph "river pollution causing male fertility problems" so no.}

37. Free TV licences for over-75s {why not 65's? that's retirement age {for public sector anyway} That's the point, isn't it? free TV for those who don't have an income? Partial credit.}

38. Banned fur farming and the testing of cosmetics on animals {except for products with medical AND cosmetic uses. Bit of a loophole, that has been exploited, so say AR. Anyway, Euro ban from 2002, hardly a Labour own policy. Partial credit for doing it first IF you hadn't introduced mail deregulation first so allowing competition a free piggyback into the UK, without our mail services going overseas..very very silly}

39. Waiting times for operations halved {Yep, good result. At the expense of deficit spending though. That on top of the 3 x Tory spending on the NHS. Partial credit only, because it can't possibly continue to remain so low as deficit spending is finite. Good work on long term waiting though.}

40. Free local bus travel for over-60s {free bus travel nationwide. Its a barmy, expensive scheme that causes hardship to tourist areas, but hey, its an initiative. No credit though, it wasn't necessary, just a vote prop.}

Last leg coming up soon.

I think you will find that free school milk in Wales is down to the Barnett Formula.

Paid for by the Englich taxpayer.

Not sure that the shorter waiting lists is a good one. From anecdotal evidence, I have found that getting on a list to an operation or to see a specialist is much harder than it used to be. This includes someone being told - yes that will need an operation, but it isn't at the stage at which you can be put on the list.

Anonymous is right...waiting times are shorter because you spend months waiting to get on the waiting list.
