Letting go

It's good to read this morning Nick' Clegg's announcement that the new UK government see that the previous government introduced too much legislation. They are going to go through the statute book to see what can be repealed, and ask the public for suggestions.  He says, “We don't, unlike Labour, believe that change in our society must be forced from the centre.. we're not insecure about relinquishing control.” The previous government did introduce some good changes, however I agree with this entirely.

The government “big picture” has to be about increasing personal responsiblity, and so I hope that “letting go” at the centre, and a recognition that government is not synonymous with legislation, will bring about a greater calm in individual citizens' lives too.
