Yesterday I asked a question "Does anyone in Government think"? Dr North replied "Did I have to ask".
Well here's another example of decisions being made without due process i.e.thinking. Things like this abound all over.
I'll answer my own question then. Yes some do think. The law of averages will see to that. The problem is not enough of them think and those that do don't have the support and power to actually deliver change. I've said before that the real problem with government is not so much the MPs, it's the administrators of the civil service which are the greatest problem. They actively support the status quo as far as change is concerned although they'll bend to change if it delivers more gain for their own interests.
Blogging is all well and good and there is certainly proof that it can be provide a positive influence at times. However, it's going to take more than blogging to change things. Are we relying on demonstrations, rioting and significant unrest as being the main trigger for change? Will this be driven by blog?
More questions than answers.

IT`s the civil service that should be first strung up .
