Great news from the Coalition.

Pensioners can sleep easy. Punitive, progressive penalisation is past history.

If they carry on like this, always on the people's side, I think they'll be in power for a long time.

"Shadow environment secretary Mary Creagh said the government was "all over the place" on waste and recycling.
She said it announced a waste review last summer that still had not been published and added the Conservatives had abandoned any hope of achieving a "zero waste" Britain."

Give the Coalition a chance, they've already beaten the progressives in an election. Surely that is the biggest step in achieving a "zero waste" zociety?

We will not achieve a real zero waste society until the Labour party crumbles and withers away. Fortunately, under Red Ed, that seems to be exactly what is happening.

Well I think we can all agree that New Labour knew a lot about waste. When it comes to waste, they wrote the book, and then threw the book at the public. I have even heard some members of the public refer to them as wasters. Recycling? Well they certainly recycled their front bench into different areas of inexpertise.

The recycling meant that we saw the same old faces wearing different hats and disguises. It was like a jolly party, high spirits and lots of clowns. When they set off their party poppers, you knew the country would come a cropper. They changed seats like in a game of musical chairs, but when the music stopped, the country's coffers were bare. It was a New Labour party alright, but the public got no invite. But now we're fortunate to have the Coalition, they''ll pull us from the jaws of progressive perdition.
