Comment Neelie
[...] We can't do that alone, and we can't do it all entirely using old procedures of consultation and legislation.

We can't do it using the old school consultants. They are often acting in the interests of the incumbents (most of them are retired telco people) or they just don't know enough about the job they are paid to consult about. We have seen this happen in the UK, where a bunch of very young 'consultants' from a big company have been totally out of their depth dealing with a very large amount of public funding and have messed it up, whereas if young 'grassroots' people who were specialists in the problem being addressed instead of being specialists in 'consulting' had been used we might have got more Bang for our Buck and got a more seamless solution.
