    1. Ultimately if there is a serious crisis it goes to the state to decide how to address the issues raised. I worked for the DWP for about a year, minimum stuff, budgets, education programmes, policies and processes, meetings with ministers, etc. There is no reasonable reason why the couldn’t deal with this and these are the policies they chose to implement. Parliament has existed for a long time now, during world war two factories were still used, so what’s the excuse?
