Ministerial Honesty - is this a first?


In an address to the Development Trusts Association, Cabinet Office Minister, Nick Hurd appears to have been surprisingly honest:

"We have a very short timeframe in which to review public spending so there is a risk that in too many areas – including those places where social capital is already low - we will get it wrong."

Help! A Government Minister admits to the possibility of "getting it wrong"? Have we moved to a strange parallel universe? And there's more:

"decisions have to be taken very quickly – often without being properly thought through"

Amazing. Staggering.

Is this what they meant by the 'new politics'?
