@number10gov U-turns are good governance.

I like the fact that the Government back-tracked over VAT on hot pasties.

Not just because of the effect it would have had on The Pound Bakery business (two hot potato and meat pies for £1), which we have in The North-West.

I like it, because the option of sticking with a bad policy just to avoid “losing face” does not lend itself to good governance.

Good governance is about correcting wrongs, especially those of your own making.
