An Open Letter to the Next UK Prime Minister from Nesta

Andrew Young — April 03, 2015

Last week, Network member Geoff Mulgan and Stian Westlake of Nesta posted an open letter “for whoever turns out to be the UK’s new prime minister.”

The letter contains recommendations like:

  • Abolishing the Treasury, and setting up a department for growth and a real PM’s department;
  • Creating superministers for big policy areas like infrastructure or equality, thus making Cabinet a more useful body; and
  • Increasing the centre’s ability to bring on board new ideas, to experiment rigorously, and to talk and listen to the people.
