Signifying nothing

Matthew Parris in the Times writes about the government's propensity to make empty announcements, something I've written about before:
Ministers flail around in an alphabet soup of piddling little initiatives. Each time the clock strikes a new idea of breathtaking triviality is press-released.
He makes a good point, although I'm not sure that the government is any worse at this than previous ones.
