An open letter to Steve Baker MP

Dear Steve,

First of all, we owe you an apology.  As Co-Director of the Institute for Ideas in a Post Bureaucratic Age I cannot believe that we haven't approached you sooner.  Rest assured, a far reaching inquiry has been established by Sir Gus O'Donnell who will be reporting back to us in due course.

Your presence on this fine planet came to the IIPBAs attention during PMQs this afternoon when you asked Cameron the Dave whether he agreed with you that "it is time for this country to lead Europe into the hope and potential of a new post-bureaucratic age?" Of course, our dear Prime Minister failed to answer your well delivered query, but rest assured, you touched this think-tank with your words (and you may not have seen this from your angle, but you also made Andrew Mitchell smile – a rare sight I understand, but what a lovely smile).

Anyway, we agree with you that peace, spiritual fulfillment, post-bureaucracy and all of the other lovely stuff that the world has to offer will only come about when "people have more to do with each other and government's less".  In fact, we are the foremost Westminster think-tank pushing the government on the post-bureaucratic agenda, a pursuit that I must admit, has seen little success so far.  However, we are not easily deterred; rather, we are significantly strengthened to see people such as you pushing the issue from your leather seat in the belly of the monster.

This is why we would like to offer you a prestigious place on the IIPBA's board of trustees.  Failing that, would you like to come to our Christmas drinks (tbc)?

The IIPBA eagerly awaits your response.

Kind Regards,

Ron Ford Golightly
