The Government at present is really worried about how much it’s spending on such things as its lawyers’ fees and all those nasty inquiries. Lawyer redundancies beckon, which is perhaps why the Government has instead decided to invest so heavily in the far more important communications division.

A veritable lean, mean PR machine.
