So we are a week or so in and already the MFs are house trained by the civil service.
I'm sure there are other examples but this one came past me today.
Yes I know - on the scale of things not hugely important, but I think it may show an early trend.
The ONLY people who thought HIPS were a good idea were New Labour.
The industry didn't - the Cons didn't, and correct me if I'm wrong but neither did the LDems.
In the manifesto it said - cancel HIPS - hooray (sorry).
And as it turns out they don't need legislation to suspend HIPS - could be done by the Minister.
Legislation could be done later to permanently remove them.
But instead they announce consultation
ConsulFuckingTation on what - a bad idea that nobody important ever wanted.
Just get rid of them - but 'no Minister, that would be rash/brave/precipitous/stupid' - lets pay a few people to tell us what we already know'.
Less than 2 weeks - house trained.
Makes you want to cry.
