The Independent Online
THREE cheers for the tenor of last Sunday's editorial on the arrogance and incompetence of the present government ('This is the game grown-ups play', 9 May). No cheers however for the drearily predictable choice of 'Daddy' as the voice of authority in matters political. Surely a paper of the stature of the Independent on Sunday knows by now that Mummy is also interested in such things and knows a bit about them, too. In reality it's probably Mummy anyway who does most of the talking with the children.
