Ken Clarke - Democracy Task Force


Earlier this week, the Conservatives, through a group chaired by Ken Clarke, published a report, “An End to Sofa Government” [downloadable at]. Whilst this is obviously a political tool with which to criticise the Blair government, the report’s recommendations would go a long way to ending Blair’s style.

I am prepared to believe that Ken Clarke believes the recommendations should be implemented but interestingly, the Conservatives have made little of this report.

Perhaps Cameron has no interest in implementing it.

Perhaps Cameron finds Blair’s style quite attractive.

Perhaps it is simply a way of highlighting the shortcomings of the Blair’s 10 years.

Whoever is PM, whatever party is in power after the next election recommendations similar to those in this report should be implemented for the benefit of all.
