Quote of the day (2)

Parris in The Times (here):
So we’ve put it all off for another two years or more. Well two cheers for that. And I do mean two cheers, and hearty ones. As with the Arabian Nights, so long as these bedtime stories can be prolonged, the planned beheading remains only a plan. Britain’s businesses can move from a period of anxiety about where we were headed, to . . . a second period of anxiety about where we are headed. This latter she called an “implementation” period, meaning a non-implementation period. What we shall be preparing to implement remains, as it always has been, a wish list.
