    The result is an NHS strangled by costly red tape, with every individual transaction the subject of a separate invoice. How has this come to pass? To emphasise the point, recent figures show that public spending is now at its lowest for 40 years, with even the Blairite Guardian claiming that 'Thatcher was more lavish than Labour'. Europe isn't working in the way this country and Europe need. The first point to make is that while Blair and his colleagues have made great play of Labour's policies as ones which will effectively modernise and renew Britain, the ideas upon which they are based are hardly new. By carefully courting the paper's owner, Rupert Murdoch, over the preceeding 18 months Tony Blair had succeeded in reversing the Tories traditional domination of the press.

Towards the end of this increasingly focused on the problem of teenage pregnancy. Greater protection will be provided for victims in rape and serious sexual offence trials and for those subject to intimidation, including witnesses.

    This would require a predominantly unitary system of local government, as presently exists in Scotland and Wales, and confirmation by independent auditors that no additional public expenditure overall would be involved. The basic framework, not every detail, of local service provision must be for central government. We will implement this in government. The courts will have to spell out what each sentence really means in practice.
