Lost in Poland

A recent edition of the Warsaw Voice, 31 May 2012, announces in a piece entitled ‘Drive for e-government’ that there is to be legislation in Poland to ensure every public body uses the Internet for delivery of their services, along with facilitating the use of e-signatures.

I cannot believe that the Polish government in its shift away from Communism hasn’t thrown off a heavy mantle of bureaucracy to generate a streamlined, slim and efficient form of dealing with its citizens, so the first step would be to unclog that and remove all unnecessary steps. If it has – pray, forgive me! It must be the only country that has achieved that first…
