The Government is keen to talk about its five-year plans for transforming schools and hospitals, but it is worth remembering when we last heard policy framed in such Stalinesque terms.

In a welcome departure from the usual post-election script, John Prescott, the Deputy Prime Minister, displayed brutal honesty. Abandoning any attempts at phoney triumphalism, he admitted that the voters had given Labour a "good kicking". Indeed they have; the voters have given Labour its biggest kicking since Tony Blair became leader in 1994. Even Ken Livingstone's victory in London is of limited comfort. The opinion polls in advance of the result all suggested that Mr Livingstone would have won by a wider margin if he had stood as an independent. Mr Livingstone won in spite of the endorsement from Mr Blair, not because of it.
