General Election Day nine Tuesday

Tory manifesto launch today and I was surprised at how weak it was-basically a rehash of all that 80's stuff about "empowering" people to run their own schools, veto council tax rises and electing mad people to run the police. What they dont get is that most people dont want to "run" things. They want to have their views respected and want to see our public services delivering high standards, what they dont want to do is spend every spare moment at budget sub-committeesor performance review groups

In actual fact the Tories are really about cutting back services and hoping the voluntary sector picks up the slack. Quite simply it won't
