The alternative model to the current version could have been 53 multimodal representations of the state with a one-stop shop for every department, tax, revenue etc. That would have been meaningful. The model, which we have adopted, is a decentralised centrality with various departments or fiefdoms operating out of various new centres. There was/is an opportunity to rethink the whole idea of democratic relationships. Instead of more obscure centres of bureaucracy this cold have been the equivalent of town square council representation of government in action.
