    If you go back a generation or so, the officials provided the advice and the Ministers took the heat. The change since the turn of the millennium is palpable - officials are part of the political process, not advisors to it.

    Until I read this this morning, I hadn't realised there's a new Public Service Act in the works. It could be interesting to see if it'll have any meaningful effect.

    So, will the new Public Service Act give us “better public services”?

    That might raise other questions about the road to public service, all the way from primary school to secondary school to university and then the next logical step. This includes casual fridays, and a bit of bullying.
