Cameron's big idea is nothing of the sort - Byrne

08 Nov 2010
Liam Byrne, Labour's Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, commenting on today's announcement by the government, said:

"Cameron's big idea is nothing of the sort. Far from being a 'revolution' it is simply a belated acceptance of Labour’s plans for smarter government."

“The power shift in public services was well under way under Labour. Opening up government and bringing in outside experts to help Whitehall is a good thing and we'll support the government in its efforts to make this work."

“But, ripping up targets without putting in place strong rights for citizens to get the public services they deserve means the Tories are offering a gamble when the public wants a guarantee. Like seeing a cancer specialist in a week or one-to-one tuition for your kids if they're falling behind. There's no power shift if the Tories junk the citizen's rights to good services
