Have-been former Government Ministers are not always the best advisors on current problems !
Lord Heseltine has proposed that Civil Servants should have pay increases to double their current salaries to render them more "capable" or "competent" in public procurement negotiations !
Likewise, he criticises the current Conservative Government about what needs to be done about airports in Britain, particularly the London area !!!
Modern life needs modern solutions. High powered politicians and executives need, want and can afford transport which permits them to avoid cars and motorways.
More helicopter pads on top of specially designed tall buildings, dotted around not only London but other major cities in the UK, would attract businessmen !
This kind of solution could also encourage the decentralisation of businesses and government departments. Does everyone really need to work in City Centers ?
