- Reform Civil Service
- Inject Business People into Departments
The civil service is a massive, bloated, cumbersome beast. Regardless of who is elected into office, civil servants are the cogs that run the country behind the scenes.
The ethos of civil servants is to further the aims and cause of a larger civil service. Their solution to any problem is more money, more staff, more Government.
In practice they spend much of their time convincing new MPs and Ministers why they can’t implement their manifesto pledges and presenting roadblocks to progress.
The purpose of civil servants is to progress the aims of their department and as such, it is in need of complete reform.
In these interesting times it’s never been more important to stay connected with each other.

The people are supposed to be in charge of MP’s and steer the direction of the country. In turn, MPs need the power to instruct civil servants.
We need to be able to inject the upper echelons with leading business people. This would introduce practical business knowledge into the different departments.
Big Government is rarely efficient. I favour small Government, slimmer down, streamlined. Less Quangos, less think tanks, less civil servants, less burocracy.
