I suffered a sudden surge of irritation when I read this 'Rebalancing' is a very Blairish word, although I suspect that Lord Mandy has had a hand in popularising it. Scales either balance or they don't. If you fiddle with them by shifting the fulcrum, they aren't rebalanced, they are tilted permanently to one side or the other. A better word would be to 'bias' the system.
