Dear The Times

Dear The Times.


All public services could be delivered online within four years under an ambitious pledge by Gordon Brown to create a paperless state and save billions of pounds, The Times has learnt.

Your reporting makes it sound as if this might remotely, within the vaguest proximity of what passes for human reality, be possible to pull off (by which I mean, make it happen in 4 years and save billions of pounds). Yet in truth, this is a bit like David Cameron promising to rejig gravity on Sundays so that we can just float up to the loo instead of having to trudge up all of the stairs to get there.

By reporting this tosh you encourage the politicians to keep doing it. Please stop.
