Gordon Brown axed a little known tax break in last week's Budget.
The Home Computer Initiative gave people the chance to buy a home computer out of untaxed income.
But Brown didn't tell his cabinet colleagues. Several Government departments signed up for the scheme just days before he axed the perk.
Given that Brown is so keen to trail budget decisions, you'd have thought he could have tipped them off not to bother, to avoid disappointing their employees.
It just shows that joined-up Government is a soundbite, not a policy.
