Re-launch or re-hash?

May 8, 2012

You’d have thought that political spinners would learn? Gordon Brown did them almost quarterly, Ed Miliband has done a fair few, the Big Society has tried at least six. Billed as re-launches, but in effect just re-hashes of the same content. And today we see the coalition proudly jumping on the re-launch bandwagon. That’s not […]

A fifth launch for the Big Society

David Cameron will launch the Big Society AGAIN tomorrow, according to the Independent. It’s possible I may have missed another one, but I make this the fifth launch of the Big Society.
