Adam Smith Institute Blog

The Adam Smith Institute blog is good at putting economic issues in context, allowing the less numerate among us to get a handle on them. Today's post by Dr Eamonn Butler is a good example. In the context of discussing the biggest Government IT project ever (and the most sinister since this one), he comments on the Government's record of controlling IT costs as follows:-
"I calculated recently that the budget spent on IT in the National Health Service was enough to give every doctor, nurse, porter and administrator 20,000 PCs each. "
Am I naieve in thinking that all a competent leader of HM Opposition has to do is state his arguments so clearly?

I think you've hit the nail on the head. The first thing that HM Opposition needs is a competent leader.
