80% of their campaign promises…

An interesting piece of research from the BBC suggests that New Labour have fulfilled 80% of their campaign promises since they came into power. Now, I think we’ve all felt disillusioned with the Labour party at some point during the last few years, but surely 80% is a pretty astonishingly high figure. Particularly for a country that increasingly believes that politicians don’t do anything of value. Unfortunately, such good news is rather undercut by the two seats won by the BNP in Burnley.
