Targets, Targets & More Targets.....

.... and the majority of them will NOT be met.

I didn't have time to post this from the Telegraph last week but it really does need exposing. It is highlighting a report from the Policy Exchange think tank.

"Two thirds of the key climate change targets made under Labour were now unlikely to be met."

"They found that rather than being an honest motivator of achievement, where failures were acknowleged and lessons learnt, a pattern of "creative accounting" had emerged where targets looked in danger of being missed."

"The report concluded that the sheer number and complexity of targets made them easy to forget or miss and therefore they lost their motivating force."

Not a bulls eye in view - no real surprises there then!
