New government publishes plans

The new Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government published its joint programme for government today, including a section on Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport.

There appear to be few surprises and the new Digital Economy Act, which the Writers' Guild supported but some members did not, is not mentioned. The Lib Dems are reported to be planning to repeal some elements of it, but the Minister in charge of the Act's implementation is a Tory, Ed Vaizey.

According to The Register:
It's not clear what sections of the Act the LibDems will call on the coalition government to repeal, but some opposition from the yellow side of the House can probably be expected.
