uk government: coalition programme May 20, 2010

Posted by Bradley in : governance , trackback

Some aspects of The Coalition: Our Programme for Government just seem like warmed over versions of the previous government’s rhetoric: no gold-plating of EU regulations, for example, and the rest of the better regulation or smart regulation agenda – perhaps this is more categorical than before, perhaps not. It looks like an agenda for more than 5 years to me, and there is a caveat at the end that deficit reduction takes priority over everything else. So it’s difficult to tell how much of the nice sounding stuff is real. There’s some weird new stuff too, like this one:

We will examine the case for a United Kingdom Sovereignty Bill to make it clear that ultimate authority remains with Parliament.
