This is exactly the sort of thing the Conservatives should be attacking on, and it's good to see Chris Grayling doing so. I suspect he was behind the Sunday Telegraph story. Brown needs to be constantly challenged when he makes grand promises which bear no relation to what's actually going on on the ground. We always had to read the small print in his budgets to get the real story, and his prime ministerial announcements are no different. Gordon Brown is the very opposite of a Ronseal prime minister. You really do have to check that it does what it says on the Brown tin.
What we could do with now, is a document from CCHQ that details all Brown's announcements in his first month, and an analysis of how they meet the Ronseal test.
