Government Systems

One of the common mistakes about government is to assume that it's all a problem with New Labour, that replacing them with the Conservatives doing the same things will fix things, I present this report from the United States:-
In one instance, the spotlight forced the Department of Veterans Affairs to review 45 IT projects, ending 12 of the projects and saving $54 million, he said.

Yet he also said veterans still have to wait more than 160 days to receive benefits partly "because the VA is still passing manila envelopes" to process claims.
This isn't a British problem or a Labour problem. It is a problem of government as a system.
