I do believe any govt should be in the business of trying to save taxpayers money. I think it is about time anyway that the govt started to take advantage of internet technology, and hold conferences over the internet. Think of the financial savings, no expensive air fares, no expensive hotels, fewer holes in the ozone layer. What the heck, they could have salad for lunch instead of those expensive cholestorol-full meals they are usually served. Hey, in a few lines I have saved the country money, saved the environment and improved the health of our ministers and their hangers-on. Oh sorry I mean their important assistants. But Quickbeam nearly gave me a heart attack with his idea, so it would all have to be spent on the NHS.
