National Resilience Programme

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I mentioned this on another thread and thought it might be lovely to get suggestions.

Proposal: 

  • The UK should create a 'National Resilience Programme', identifying the areas and industries that were badly affected by covid19 and particularly where there will be an ongoing problem even after the lock-down ends. 
  • This would cover 'everything', but should be focused on government stuff, because that's (possibly) easiest for government to influence. 
  •  An unstated part of the rationale would be to influence stuff that has great inertia to change (unions, usually) and where the crisis would make it more difficult to counter the resilience plans (ie, 'all in it together').
  • This isn't about 'plans' -- this is about moving to a new model even under normal times, with maintained effectiveness but making the shift to 'lockdown' type mode seamless.

To start with I offer 'Education' -- it is time we moved from an ever teacher-heavy model, to something that can be equally if not more effective yet that would be easy to move online (or similar) when the need arose.

Education:
Broadband and laptop for every child. Enables them to have their homework done at home. Add in a printer. Laser not fucking inkjet. 
Replaced at the states expense every time it breaks.
Teach kids remotely all the time who can't behave in mainstream. They might not get an education BUT it'll stop them ever distrupting other kids again.

Health
Everyone has to do an hours exercise a day.
You can drive to somewhere nice if that helps.
