To me this is just another indication the government has gone into fully reactive mode. Another example was the lead up to the Youth Crime Action plan.

I quite like the Tory proposals for fuel duty although with one caveat. The cost of fuel must continue to rise as an incentive to use less and reduce our dependence on it. While the proposals would smooth out the rises we currently get due to fluctuating oil and duty rates if it wasn't raised year on year eventually there would be a) no fuel duty to the government, b) we won't of reduced our dependence. Still a guarded thumbs up from me.
