Cameron’s totally, completely new idea

David Cameron has had a new idea – a real original. As the Guardian reports:

A new Conservative government may keep parliament sitting through next August in an attempt to show its determination to implement its manifesto commitments, a source has disclosed. The move would send a message of a symbolic break with the current parliament’s self-serving practices, the source said.

Clearly, this is in no way related to Nick Clegg’s 100 days campaign earlier this year in which Clegg said:

Together, over the next 100 days, we could achieve nothing less than the total reinvention of British politics, underpinned by the fundamental principles of accountability, transparency and probity. These months would become a great moment in British political history, rather than a shabby footnote to a shameful month of revelations.

A pity the Conservatives didn’t support that attempt to end parliament’s self-serving practices – just think what could have already been achieved.
