I quote, in all its full glory, paragraph 6.33 of Enterprise: unlocking the UK’s talent, the “Enterprise Strategy” published as part of yesterday’s Budget:
Transparency and easy access to R&D contract opportunities is essential. To ensure co-advertising, a link will be put in place between the TSB website and www.supply2.gov.uk. This will enable maximum exposure for these opportunities amongst the SME sector.
Yes, that’s right. The Government’s answer to what is a serious issue is, drum roll please, adding one whole weblink between one (yes count ’em all, that’s one) website and one other. I’m glad our economy is in such safe hands. I’m going to have to go and have a lie down now. All this technical innovation is just too much for me.
