Tessa Jowell Public Services Forum - legacy

30 Jul 2009 by Karl Hallam

Public service reform goes on and now Tessa Jowell has this on her plate as well as the Olympics. The Guardian and particularly David Conn have written well about the potential sports particpation legacy of 2012. What will be the legacy of the public service reform work of recent years?

The Cabinet Office release highlights some succeses, but it all sounds a bit jargony and out of sync with the time, for example:

Successes so far include:

Welcoming the publication of the report, Tessa Jowell said:

"The PSF is still enabling productive discussions between the government and trades unions on workforce reform after nearly six years.

"Demand for public services is increasing during the recession, so it's more important than ever that frontline staff have the skills and support they need to deliver first-rate services.

"In Building Britain's Future we set out an ambitious vision for the future of public services in this country, but we can only make that vision a reality by working with everyone involved in the public services supply chain.

"The forum allows us to do that - I'm very proud to be its new chair and I'm looking forward to continuing its good work as we tackle the economic challenges ahead."

This suggests that somewhow this has made a real difference. It may have, but will any changes survive a change in government or the impending cuts in public expenditure?

Well it appears I'm a bit late to this party, but I'll chime in aywnay. I think it's funny that everyone is so passionate about the host city Olympic logo. Nobody else seemed to care in the past. I went to the 2002 games and I had to search online what the hell it was. There were about 50 other symbols for the games, not to mention all the cute little animal mascots Let's not forget, the real logo is the rings. Yes, some (host city logos) are better than others, but unfortunately none of us will know the true evolution of this identity, as we were not privileged to the meetings with the Olympic committee. Josh, that Munich logo gave me an epileptic fit just now after I had to look it up again I'm just now recovering. Mexico 68 was just as mind-bending. How is LA 84 any less schizophrenic? What are we all looking for? Big Ben, meets St, Paul's cathedral meets Westminster Abbey? I personally have fond memories of Piccadilly Circus with all the punks. BTW, I hear the logo is being revamped, and you know what that means let's add some lifestyle photography to it and make it more personable. My take? Everyone is just jealous that they didn't get the c2a3400,000 payday.
