Car trouble

From tomorrow’s Guardian. Didn’t I tell people this would happen? Well maybe not, but I thought it to myself. Red boxes aren’t allowed to go on public transport. How are they going to dig themselves out of this one?

Incidentally, whips are entitled to black boxes, not red. They’re too heavy to carry and we have nothing much to put in them. I never got mine.

    According to Wikipedia (citing some BBC article), some black boxes are already made explicitly so ministers can carry them discretely on public transport.

      Wont Cameron’s idea actually increase the cost of government? The red box will be travelling in a car anyway, forcing the minister to take the train results in the additional cost of a train ticket.

    We have this thing called “laptops” in the rest of the world, they fit nicely into bags, rucksacks and cycle panniers. There is still the problem of securing the contents, which is where truecrypt kicks in.

    no cars, no ink expense, you get email as well as documents, and your comments on documents can be merged with others and put on the server.

    Maybe it’s time for the government to embrace the 21st century as far as computing goes.

    Oh dear, is that the best you can come up with to criticise the new gov Kerry? here’s a thought – to quote the great House of Cards series – “your opinion doesn’t count for very much any more does it?”

    And I see you’re backing Balls as leader – great stuff – I so hope he wins – it will consign your party to opposition for as long as he leads you ..
