Government/the Civil Service are crap at doing stuff
Governments have to do some stuff, e.g. defence, so buying Chinooks for Afghanistan that could operate in a desert is the price you pay
Government should leave well alone, apart from defence. I used to included education, but the LEAs were poor and we now have a tertiary education system where everyone of the so called Universities charges £9.5K p/annum for often rubbish course, oh and manage to pay the VC 1/4-1/5Mill per annum
Gov leave stuff well alone, please??????
