Do not do as I do, do as I say...

It almost seems as if this is something that Stephen Timms, the countries E-commerce minister is saying to people, if you read this article on The Register.

It would appear that leading by example amongst politicians has fell by the wayside, at this time Stephen Timms does not have any form of broadband access at his East Ham home. Apparently he has been too busy to decide what to install - forgive me but isn't one of the advantages of broadband being able to run secure VPNs enabling people to work from home? Even if security rules stop ministers from carrying out offical work over Internet connections, surely just having the ability to do a little homework would not go amiss.

We look forward to hearing what Mr Timms choice is and how he finds the experience.
