Up the Garden Path?

My last post (I often hear that these days) prompts some short notes on responding to Government papers/proposals.

You’ll find that like a skilled barrister they (those sinister clay white faces in starched collars sitting in the third underground cellar of the Department of Health) quietly and subtly lead you in the direction they want your mindset to go. They do this by setting their own predetermined questions so that you’re only looking for the things they are asking for. They’ll say they do this to make a complex task simpler.

This is skewed consultation and you should be looking at the proposals with a service user’s eye, not one the Government wants you to look with. I suggest a first global scan, noting the bits that make you frown, however slightly, then a more detailed reading, section by section, happily using their system of reference, and finally making comments and suggestions that are your’s - no one else’s
