Which policy areas require long term investment, planning, infrastructure, expert understanding and should therefore be largely ring fenced away from politicians, politics and short term policies, and perhaps be governed by independent specialist bodies with greater powers ?
Is there a way to limit political populist input into these areas? Perhaps to strictly limit politicians to budget priorities rather deciding on the “how” decisions (constant chopping, changing, inefficiencies, wastage, morale destroying, dismantling of good practices & systems)
Reconsidering these aspects are as much a part of our broken political system. A failure to think long term, focus on retaining short term power, needing to be voted in by an electorate that can be swayed by populist choices, unrealistic, undeliverable (& ineffective) policies.
For starters, all of these policy areas badly need long term joined up strategic & systemic thinking, investment & programmes:
- climate emergency
- inequalities / poverty
- health & social care
- Housing
- transport
- education
- environment
- highways
