Don't mention the eco-towns

A promise to build ten eco-towns (up from five) was a highlight of Gordon Brown's speech to last year's Labour conference.

This year Brown said not one word about them, neither did Hazel Blears. The only minister to say a word about them was housing minister Caroline Flint, who said this in a little reported speech:
we will rise to the challenge of climate change, creating greener homes for all including 21st Century Eco Towns.
