"Government to axe hundreds of 'unnecessary' websites"

The savings envisaged in this plan to ditch many of the wasteful, little-visited 'vanity' websites set up under the previous Labour government's time in office are not very large, when compared with the huge level of government spending (and waste), but they are nonethelsss a welcome step in the right direction.

It is to be hoped that the new ConLib coalition government will not be thwarted in its aim to cut down the size and cost of the 'State', by the colossus that is the Civil Service (as epitomised in Yes Minister by that master of obfuscation Sir Humphrey Appleby).
