Show us Your Vision, Gordon!
Today is the day when we get to see Gordon Brown's much heralded "vision". Or not. Unless he's got a rabbit to pull out of the hat we already pretty much know what is going to be in the speech. We also know that the government didn't have enough Bills ready so had to dust a couple of Bills off the shelf. It's not so much a vision, more of a threat. It's full of pieces of legislation which threaten our freedoms rather than enhance them. It's full of legislation which reeks of 'government knows best'. And that, ladies and gentlemen, tells us all we need to know about Brown's so-called 'vision'.
