Finally, the model cannot explain the why the Fundamental Expenditure Review (FER) reduced core budget and directly challenged the interests of senior officials by removing their jobs. In sum, the bureau-shaping model has a tendency to ignore politics. There is little examination of what goes on in particular departments and how that might have affected the process of reform. Radcliffe (1991: 41) believes that Dunleavy's study is 'strongly non-political in that ministers themselves and the political environment in which departments operate are largely absent'.
In the language of Osborne and Gaebler (1992), the role of the government is to steer not to row, but it is not clear that there is a single pair of hands on the rudder. The reforms have created a 'policy vacuum', with steering being based on 'crisis management and blame avoidance', which results in a lack of coordination and a confusion of roles (Rhodes 1997a: 24). Alternatively, while government may not be very effective at coordination, it does not necessarily mean it has abandoned the desire to control.
Strategies may be seen as the overall style for achieving goals, whereas tactics are the means to achieve strategic goals within particular situations. Strategies and tactics are infinite. The Prime Minister may choose to be a collectivist or dominant in cabinet, but when faced with a particular situation he or she may decide that the best tactic is to build an alliance with a particular minister. The choice of tactics and strategy will depend on the particular situation. As we will see in Chapter 4, Thatcher probably chose the wrong strategy and tactics when she was challenged for the leadership in 1990.
