Regardless of who is elected into office, civil servants are the cogs that run the country behind the scenes.

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 starting with people who actually understand and can improve the departments they are working in.  Every day we see examples of wasteful, bad or unnecessary spending of our money by councils, public services or the Government.

Across the country over the whole year, this adds up to tens of billions of pounds of our money is wasted every year, this is a real crisis of mismanagement.

The vast and growing mountain of daft, unproductive regulations that hinder small businesses and restrict growth are all part of the same problem, lacking in common sense. They go hand in hand with the wasteful spending, which also restricts our growth rate

Reform UK knows that with better leadership, better buying, better decisions, this waste of our money can be cut right back, without affecting front line services.

The reformation of the civil service, with more accountability for quality and performance which will require more successful private sector people coming into the civil service to use their skills to develop better value for Government and the Great British public.

Let’s make it part of our moral duty to society, to give something back.

You have a choice; you can stand on the sidelines & moan about everything that is wrong with the Country & the dire state of current politics, or, you can get involved and help us to make the changes we all need....
