SMOTHERED IN FAIRNESS

14 April 2010

It seeps from every party pore. Their 2010 manifestos ooze fairness. Labour, Libdems, Greens, Cornish Democrats, UKIP, even the Tories with their build-your-own flatpack fairness. All are offering fair this and fair that and fairness. It’s everywhere.

MK is doing it too with a call for fair funding. Okay, in another post I shall reflect upon what MK might mean but here I recognise its share in the zabaglione.

And let me leave you with this thought about fairness: “He never wants anything but what’s right and fair; only when you come to settle what’s right and fair, it’s everything that he wants and nothing that you want.” Tom Brown’s schooldays
