Classic Liberal Democrat policy

Vince Cable has suggested that the bonus culture within Whitehall and its civil servants is as bad as that culture found within, erm, banks.

This is a classic Lib Dem approach to policy: take something that people roughly agree with and extend it beyond the realms of reality so that, in practice, no one but the most deluded or misguided could possibly support it.

I like to think of the Lib Dems as a sort of Now Show, but where they don’t mean the jokes they tell to be funny.
