I believe one people with this government as well as governments in general is that they have not set clear big picture goals in which to pin all its policies on. It talks about cutting costs but it is a goal which is not being implemented as strongly as people may realise which so much waste being created by this government.
Many of the big goals of government are there and have always been there regardless of who was in powerful like reducing crime, effective justice, full employment and so on, although have not been strategically followed through. I believe every penny spent by the government must be linked to achieving these top goals in one way or another, which should be clear and transparent.
It is only which we have a government clear about its goals and its plans to achieve them will we have a government accountable to its citizens.
