    Default It is high time...

    1) It is high time the government took action.

    2) It is high time the government had taken action.

    3) It was high time the govern took action.

    4) It was high time the government had taken action.

    Are they all correct? How are they different?

    1) It is high time the government took action. OK

    2) It is high time the government had taken action. Wrong tense.

    3) It was high time the government took action. OK

    4) It was high time the government had taken action. Wrong tense.
