Sleeves rolled up

To gauge how on the ball these ConDems are, I did a quick trawl around the Gov dept sites which reveals that …

Most departments haven’t had time to do anything but post a rather ominous message along the lines of:

Content on this site is under review following the formation of a new government.

See eg DfT, BIS, DEFRA.

All is very calm and sensible at Education:

All statutory guidance and legislation linked to from this site continues to reflect the current legal position unless indicated otherwise, but may not reflect Government policy.

But Boy George at HM Treasury has been quick and ruthless:

Following the result of the 2010 General Election, we have reviewed and amended our web content to remove information related to the previous administration.

So, that’s 13 years erased in the blink of an eye.

Meanwhile everyone’s headed over to join baldy at the Foreign Office and the National Security Council ponders …

What do we do now?

Apart, you mean, from the fact that copies of every government website have been taken 4 weeks before, 1 week before and 1 week after the general election, by by virtue of the special project being undertaken here: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/webarchive/
