I think the Cabinet Room is the best place for Cabinet meetings

I can completely see the point of a ministerial visit to the 2012 Games venues, I think it’s great that the PM and other to members of government used the high-speed Olympic Javelin shuttle from St Pancras to Stratford to celebrate 200 days to games time.

But I still can’t see the need to have Cabinet meetings all around the country.

I used to do a lot of business travelling, lots of meetings in lots of places, you get to see the train or plane, a taxi, the inside of a meeting room, a taxi and then a train or plane.  You get to see very little of the places where the meetings are whether it be Lewisham, Liverpool or Lima.

If the point of these visits is to see the place, then just go for a visit and be shown around.  If the point is to have a Cabinet meeting then just do it in the Cabinet Room in Whitehall, I just can’t see how mixing the two can work.
