The Pendulum

Today’s The Times quoted the Prime Minister as having said  “that the time had come for the pendulum to swing towards the environment”.

Now this is fascinating. It reveals the role of environmental policy in the speaker’s mind. The environment so, follows the path of a pendulum. Swinging from a high to a low. It has hence an importance which is cyclical. Very high at times very low at others.

Is this government’s environmental policy ?
