Don't forget an entirely new diversity department. An equal opportunities officer. A whole brace of transgender outreach champions, meeting facilitators, coaching consultants, nuclear free zone officers, staff five-a-day fruit and veg coordinators, green living enablers etc, etc, etc.
I believe the Guardian has already ordered in extra stocks of news print in anticipation of a bumper crop of public sector job ads.
Unfortunately, the new departments will be managed by the same useless wastes of desk space as the old department.
At least the two departments will be able to blame each other for the increasing torrent of catastrophes that are engulfing the Home Office.
My god, we really are going down the route of the septics, aren't we.
Lets have a department for this, and a department for that, oh and while we are at it, lets have one to oversee the other two.
End result being that right and left hands don't communicate, and things end up getting missed or ignored.
If the departments within the Home office can't communicate effectively whilst they are all part of the same system, how is it going to get any better by splitting them and adding another layer of bureaucracy?
The Ministry of Security sounds like something from George Orwells 1984 and the Ministry of Justice very European!!
All it is to me is an admission of failure by "tough guy" John Reid.I take it now he will resign as he's admitted he can't control the department by splitting it up.
I won't hold my breath though!!
