a load of gobbledegook to try and put off the reforms as long as possible!
"Reform" is a weasel word. It just means "changes", but it's got loaded with the implication that it means "changes for the better". The trouble is the changes which are likely to be brought in is that theybare in fact going to be changew for the worse in a situation where changes for mtyhe better are badly needed.
"From the frying pan into the fire" is the traditional way of describing the reforms which appear likely to be unleashed on us.
