A new minister will surely need a new department and the new department will surely need to create new rules, directives, laws, etc. to justify its existence. Ah, more Jobs For The Boys (of whatever sex) and more burden for the taxpaying donkeys of the UK.
Oh, I'm all for it really. After all, if it keeps a few more incompetents off the job market then I'm happy for them. But, before we go ahead and bring in the Catalan architect to design the new Ministry building, could I request that the government do just a few teensy other things first? Like immigration laws that are in the interests of British citizens, police forces that actually police, schools that actually teach, transport infrastructure that actually transports efficiently and, let's see, what else? Oh yeah, that one! Could we please ask our expenses-gorged MP's to get their noses out of the trough for just a week or two? Just to try it, y'know?
