right on track

As it is a Friday the time has come again for some political comment from the august pages of IPTV times. As it happens it was impossible to stop laughing this morning when the figures from the back to work scheme indicated that in fact the scheme was less effective than doing absolutely nothing. This was robustly described as being on track. What track might that be ? The track into the woods where the strange man lives ? Perhaps the same track the public borrowing figures are on ?

It is tremendous to see the "brass it out" approach from the coalition as it drifts outside of the normal boundaries of sanity and repeats in tourette fashion that all is well and on track. The time has clearly come to let someone else have a go - come on Boris are you a man or a mouse ?
