It’s government getting high-tech
David Cameron, he Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, First Lord of the Treasury, Minister for the Civil Service and Leader of the Conservative Party gets an personalised iPad app to govern the country. What a style statement it is, isn’t it? Cameron describes himself as a “modern compassionate conservative” and has spoken of a need for a new style of politics, saying that he was “fed up with the Punch and Judy politics of Westminster”. He has urged politicians to concentrate more on improving people’s happiness and “general well-being”, instead of focusing solely on “financial wealth”.
When he always has his speeches correct he sure will make that he is politically correct too. He recently bought a personalized iPad app to have all his political steps right. Well do you have any idea how much does the app costs and how much did the Prime Minister got it for? The Prime Minister gor it at a cost of £20,000, whereas it comes for $31,720.
It is said to feature a management dashboard that will enable the PM “instant access to crime statistics, unemployment figures NHS waiting lists and the latest polling data”. It will also allow access to news from a particular constituency that is achieved by integrating Google search trends and Twitter feeds of MPs and government officials and that way he can also monitor his ministers and the working of his government.
