PoliticsUK: Govt: Cameron's Tories (+ LibDems) prepare for "political war" over reducing the Brit govt bureaucracy ... fewer regulations?

"the Cameron government is prepared to wage a political war
to reduce the size of the public sector in Britain, 
which expanded rapidly under Labour .... "

 Cameron's Tories (+ LibDems) -- hereafter termed "the coalition" -- British govt coalition is preparing itself and the public generally, for "political war" over the issue of reducing the Brit govt bureaucracy ... I stretch from a seemingly distant issue, that of fewer regulations?  Bringing the two lines of policy thawt to an intersection at this moment ... I ask what has "tax and axe" have to do with the question of 'fewer regulations'?

Off hand, it seems to me that with fewer bureaucrats at tempered-down wages (the crewcuts) and salaries (the bigwigs), fewer bureaucrats to do the work, therefore peripheral services have to go.  Less service to the public.

The just mentioned negative -- "less service to the public, except in the case of medical professionals and facilities" and one more exception, I can't quite remember no time to look it up no time notime time-knot  -- when the rubric admits the redefinition of its terms  -- less service for now, but aiming steadily toward optimal service.  In my definitions of norms for govt support of medicine I woud include centrally the goal of optimal service.

But of course medical economics relying on govt support of several kinds, becomes enkaptic in advanced industrial/ woudbe postindustrial countries amidst world globalization, medical economics becomes enkaptic within political economics, and more pinpointedly within politics of the electoral kind.  You duck out from under certain problems, while taking on other's -- to which  of the possibly multiple others do you give the priority?,  and then the penultimate status? -- is the sheer stuff of political strategy in a multi-party (at least triparty) system, such as is Britain at present.

And concerned for UK reformationals in their daily lives, including their incomes, banking, and further financials an austerity govt is an austerity govt, a severity govt ... consistent enforcement is the key ... the question of the over use of policing function? 

Is this an optimal occasion for establishment of a Christian Labour Association of England (CLAE), at least a ginger group working by mutual storytelling and systemic-oriented discussion -- say, once a month -- toward establishing eventually a General Workers Local to think, network, propagandize for, and recruit -- beginning with one's Christian networks and merging them with one another to produce an iniitial contacts list.

But, in philosophical terms focussed  especially for the disciplines of organizational, operational, and leadership studies, CLAE woud have the necessity of making clear to all interested in membership in a CLAE Trade Local  or a Company-Wide Local (say, in the building trades and in specific-trade orgs parallel to those of  CUTT).   In this philosophy of labour-ethics and labour-representation theory, membership does not exclude workers who are not Christians.  Every member is free, as far as CLAE is concerned, to determine in their own consciences how to speak of their religious identity.
