Coalition scorecard

A slight move upwards after a couple of government ministers talk a good fight.
+1 ... Nick Clegg calling the Iraq invasion illegal (1). And Damien Green declaring a burqua ban would be 'unBritish' (2).

OVERALL 3/10 - It's these little flashes of principle that keep the government just about looking respectable. They might be economic idiots and social vandals, but they manage to show more principle in a week than Labour did in 13 years.
Still, it has only been a couple months. They really have managed to plumb the depths pretty fast, and I suspect they may manage to sink lower still.
