Tim Montgomerie has a quite lengthy post on Conservative Home in respect of the 're-working' of how Number 10 goes about its daily business'. If the details of Tim Montgomerie's post are correct, then in addition to lifting the roof off Number 10 the sooner we demolish the walls the better!
If Cameron needs someone to someone to ensure he 'hits' long-term political goals, then why the hell has he got the job he has?
If the Civil Service appears to have the amount of influence Montgomerie's post suggests, then it does indeed seem to have been inflicted with a 'Common Purpose' and the sooner this is removed - surgically or otherwise - the better.
If a 'press team' is required to 'manage' 'big issues'- when they 'blow up', then perhaps the wrong people are in the position of Secretaries of State?
Montgomerie notes that:
"David Cameron started with only a handful of policy advisors. Gordon Brown's unit was staffed almost entirely by political advisers (SpAds) and they, naturally, left with him. Ten months into the Coalition government Cameron is determined to keep his promise to reduce the overall number of SpAds and that is why the new Policy Unit will be staffed by civil servants."
Yet this is no more than politicising the Civil Service - which should not happen?
Whenever I read that anything is going to be 'beefed-up' I take that to mean that the cattle are to be culled - which probably explains my proposition that we live under a system of democratised dictatorship, something which is the explanation of all our ills!
We do indeed the revolution for which some of us long!
