It is good to see that politicians are using technology to help them prise votes from the electorate. Boris Johnson and Gordon Brown have both separately pledged to improve access to the internet.
Tax cuts used to be key to winning over voters but Gordon wants to give laptops and broadband to poor families while Boris wants London to become “a Wi-Fi city” where the internet is available anywhere and everywhere.
But what the government gives with one hand it takes with the other. “A large Hadron Collider for all” will be the next political flier to come through your letterbox.
