Govt "not focusing on policy"?

Phil Sage points out that "analysis of Labour Party Press Releases by blogger 'Half Done' shows that over 80% of Labour's time this year has been spent not focusing on policy." Phil isn't sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing.

Well, if that was reflected in a similar thrust in Parliament I would say it's unequivocally good -- given the prevailing policy focus of all the major parties the less parliamentary focus on policy there is from the ruling party the less meddling we would have to endure. Sadly however, I suspect the focus in Parliament has been about 80% on policy, 15% on avoiding questions, and 5% on "moving on."
