Today I went door knocking in Martin and Martin Mill with my team. It was really interesting to hear what people where concerned about. A lot of people spoke about finding Government agencies incredibly unhelpful. Including the man who hasn't had a passport for 15 years, so is treated as a "new applicant". Even though they have all the paperwork on file, he still needs to find all his papers. At his age . . . no mean feat.
Generally there seems to be a problem that Government thinks people are there to do its bidding. In fact, Government should be there to serve us and be helpful. A bit of a culture change might be a good thing!
