The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

And another one....

A report out today has highlighted (what a surprise) that the relaxation of drinking laws in other countries has had a "had a negative impact on health, crime and safety".

Did we really need a survey to tell us this? Come on - you only have to go to certain town and city centres to see the effects that excess alcohol has. And the Government's answer - oh lets just let pubs open longer.

The Government wants to create a cafe culture in our towns and cities. Well you do that by opening more cafes - not by opening pubs longer. Another issue we need to be calling the Government to account on.
