Oh dear. It looks like Iain's dog whistle is malfunctioning. That post was only supposed to be noticed by farmers and other country folk, not people with awkward questions about his apparent abandonment of conservative free market principles (see the comments for details). Iain almost sounds like one of those supermarket hating lefties who want us all to eat only beetroot grown on our communal grounds or something...

Ah, the hazards of politics.

You've gotta luv his detailed research. 10 minutes apparantly.

Still, I guess that allows us to quantify research in future now that we have an agreed unit of research: 1 Dale = 10 minutes research.

It's a curious facet of many tories that they some how believe that subsidies are bad, that supply and demand should rule the employment market and that business is better without red tape, unless it affects the land-owning foxhating tory landowners.
