This report of remarks by The Justice Secretary is such a refreshing contrast to the heavy-handed bullying of the Blair-Brown years.
You wouldn't have heard Blair say:- 'we would prefer not to legislate'. Once he had reached a consensus on the no.10 sofa and run it by Alastair Campbell he would have had a Bill drafted before breakfast, and rammed through in a matter of weeks. What an illiberal mess that led to, time after time.
I do not suggest that Ken Clarke is perfect, any more than the Coalition's policies are, but isn't it nice to hear words of reason emanating from Whitehall?
