The UK government published a Transformation Strategy, which launches the next stage of government digital transformation, building upon the progress of the 2012 Digital Strategy. It aims to respond to citizens’ expectations for more convenient and responsive services, and increase value for money of government investments, by leveraging on the tidal wave of digital innovation that is transforming the economy.


There's one fundamental thing to keep in mind when it comes to border protection. Knowing and tracking an intruder's direction of travel can be much more important than building a physical barrier. Human beings are very creative when it comes to getting around things that block their progress, so once a border is breached, actual enforcement happens after the crossing.

A couple of years ago I had a chance to meet a group of border patrol agents from Texas. They were in Washington D.C. to participate in a conference focused on police and national security issues.

We talked about ways to close the holes in the U.S. Mexican border and the subject of walls came up. One of the officers rolled his eyes. I don't remember his exact words but he stressed that walls are great for urban areas, but they have minimal impact in rural areas where the nearest border patrol agent might be located miles away.
