On Monday's Backchat, plans for a new Civil Service College. The new administration has ideas to open a college to train civil servants better. Originally there was talk of making it like Singapore's, to encourage innovation and new technology. Now there is also to be an emphasis on 'deepening civil servants' understanding of our country's development'. Is there a danger that the college will resemble the 'party schools' found on the Mainland, and will be a place for brainwashing? What do you think Civil Servants should study? Is the culture of senior civil servants still anglophile? Call us on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, where are the hairy crabs?
