Harman red tape madness
Not content with saddling the British Economy with an total lemon of a budget, the best brains in the Labour Government are determined to go further. Now we have a new equal pay bill.
This comes in a session where it has been noted that the Government has almost no new work to do, but they can make up time for this.
There are many studies showing that , a) Women's pay is getting better every year and b) some gaps are structural due to maternity and women's choices in employment.
Now, at this time of economic woe, when all our companies are struggling just to keep going, we get a new load of useless socialist worker nonsense.
What credibility now does Harriet Harman have for Labour leader...certainly not as a leader of New Labour.
The Government is without shame, where is its vaunted regulation reduction department to combat this tripe? A silence across Whitehall.
Gordon Brown, supposedly in his own mind a champion of business, lets this go by as his power is so diminished within No10.
The saying is that you get the Government you deserve; the UK is a sad and pathetic PC country heading for meltdown on this evidence.
