What advice would you give to the next Prime Minister?

US is one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Look the corrupted the FBI is and the bias towards Trump and Hunter Biden, look how Pelosi's drung driver husband is evading the same justice someone else would face. The corruption is in US government is rife, they steal from the people constantly.
And how is that related to the selection of the next Conservative Party leader.
 
Listen to your staff: the collective knowledge and experience of the ”junior” civil service is far superior to the knowledge of the “senior” civil service, SPADs, think tanks and politicians.
and maybe less likely to be politicking and boosting their career maybe? Getting a head by doing a good job rather than brown nosing & dodging?

FOC :p
 
What advice would I give to the conservative MP who becomes the PM... ummm... Let me see. How about bloody well be a conservative for a start?
 
Don't redecorate.
On the contrary... redecorate.. strip the walls and use anaglypta wallpaper throughout and magnolia emulsion.. replace all the expensive ornaments and paintings with stuff from the nearest charity shops. Flying ducks on the walls... lots of them... paintings of sad puppies with big eyes.. .lots of crappy painted thimbles on every shelf and threadbare teddies on all furniture.... as for furniture, repurpose a truckload of that uncomfortable Army Quarters stuff that must be festering away in a store somewhere since the 1980s.

Replace carpets with lino...

All part of the 'Back to Basics' and 'Austerity' programme. When Laura Kuenssberg et al complain that it's too austere fly into a rage and blast in their faces with "MAKE YER FEKIN' MIND UP!! You were complaining about gold taps before!!!"

Finish the look off by hanging an England flag from the top bedroom window and wait to see if Emily Thornberry comments... with a bit of luck the shock may cause Sturgeon to have a seizure as well......

I was going to type, glibly, "govern for the whole country, not just the bits you think will/did vote for you".
Then this comes out. Sunak's Richmond is one of the richest places in the country & they were in line for big bungs, even before.

I’d tell them to reintroduce national service and put them to work in the fields and sorting infrastructure like the roads. They could also work in social care. That way we wouldnt waste millions on useless degrees, we’d give them a sense of responsibility, teach them what work is and we wouldn’t need immigrants to pick crops so we could send them all home.

It would solve lots of problems if it was done correctly. Anyone refusing to do it could spend the time in lock-up.
 
The slithy Gove is the most talented veteran statesman in Parliament. Not using his talents would be foolish (albeit with a sword of Damocles above his head)
He has been sacked by 3 PMs

He must be doing something right.

Dear Prime Minister

All I ask you to do all the things that wind wetsmonkey provost and a couple of others up. You should be OK with that as it seems to be very easy.

Thank you

Tax the bejazus out of social media and ignore the press.
 
1. Make better decisions

Use decision making tools such as Plan/Do/Check/Act (PCDA - the Deming Cycle) or Six Thinking Hats to avoid policy blunders.

2. Be agile

Be ready to adapt policy to reality, or to fit changing circumstances. Small changes of detailed policy are not U turns, but fine tuning.

3. Remember all the value in life comes from integration

Be a one nation leader, remembering all four component parts of Britain. Think of education and employment as related, as are health and social care, and foreign policy and defence. Deterrence is more cost effective than warfighting but is a constant endeavour, preventative medicine will reduce acute health costs, and rehabilitation will reduce social care needs - train and employ more Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Tailoring the education system to the likely future of employment will be infinitely better than going back to the old days.

4. Geography matters

The United Kingdom will always been part of Europe, but we can more accurately be described as a 'Euro-Atlantic' nation than a 'European' one. That gives us unique strengths and opportunities as well as threats and vulnerabilities. Threats may vary with political leaders coming and going, but vital interests do not.

5. To err is human...

From time to time mistakes will happen - whether policy or personal failings. Own up, take ownership, and the furore will soon go away.
Technically the Shewart-Deeming Cycle - nevertheless, a good yardstick for any profession. It ought to be applied to the 'bankers' - in one dimension or another they have led us into another abyss and, as usual, only they can get us out of it. Both statements contain a fair measure of truth.

We need a new paradigm, a new political profession and a civil service that does not dangle a knighthood at ever PUS/AUS in a process that leads inevitably to a lack of action, the absence of change when necessary, procrastination aimed at maintaining the status quo and very little understanding of the lives of those they seek to govern.
 
Stop pointless photo opportunities.
Never wear a high viz vest or a hard hat.

So,
1. Six unelected advisors who will never agree with one another, will undermine each other, or will become a hive minded Group Think?

2. Knee jerk?

3. An even bigger NHS and Social Services, Wahhabism, to replace the current idea of History on the curriculum. Tradition, Law and Order, no longer matter as not mentioned so I guess the social services are going to be attending mental health calls instead of the police for once in their lives. A bigger, more capable, armed forces is required ie walk softly but carry a big stick. (agree).

4. see 3.

5. I do agree on this.
 
Invite the First Ministers round for high tea, sit down chat away make them feel important. Then remind them all you answer to HM and her alone. It’s her country so abide by her rules.

Also impress on the vital importance of appointing a personal protection officer to Boris.
Candidates list can be limited to one arrser only.
 
You can make no significant changes to a countries direction unless it is supported by Law.

Withdraw from the jurisdiction of the ECHR.
Suspend the HR Act in its entirety ; re-examine it Clause by Clause and where the wording works against the will of the majority - re-write it / bin it.
Life Sentences means Lifetime incarceration - not release in half the sentence and even sooner for good behaviour. The incentives for good behaviour can be access to TV, books, better food etc.
