    There`s an easy way to test public opinion, it`s called a general election.

    Public opinion only matters when it agrees with the Nu Labour point of view. If it does not then you have the line that it is not governments role to pander to public opinion. If everything was down to public opinion there would be no duty on booze, fags or petrol and hanging would be back. I'm not saying that this should happen but the govt wouldn't introduce it simply because the public wants it.
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    The court of public opinion says that Brown f***ed up the economy, Harman thinks she is Napoleon Bonaparte, and the labour party will leave office with the country in a right mess. Again.

    The only public opinion that Labour are interested in is that determined by the opinion polls in marginal seats.

    Bill McKay, professor of contractual physics at Reading University, said: "Let me try to explain this in layman's terms. Harriet Harman is an unbearably ghastly human being who will say and do anything to become leader of the Labour Party."
    "Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. "
