Image of the Day

Originally my image from the first day of conference was going to be of local Government Minister Greg Clark.

He was holding out a set of regional guidance documents issued by one of the Regional Assemblies that the Government has just scrapped. This huge wodge of instructions weighed 2 stones and contained 3,000 pages. Then he announced that these had all been scrapped and held out the documents that have replaced it.

It has 6 pages!

But that image was topped a few minutes later by Eric Pickles holding up one of the last surviving remnants of John Prescott's time in office; one of 20,000 biros branded with "Office of the Deputy Prime Minister".
