Too much government

On ePolitix today:

The prime minister has unveiled 500 new measures to cut Whitehall red tape.

Nineteen government departments will publish plans to save businesses and charities more than £2bn a year.

Is it just me, or is that opening sentence somewhat self-contradictory?

I thought the same thing. They will need to establish a new ministry to carry out all of the recomendations. The Ministry for De-Bureacratization.

Isn't that the job of the Department of Administrative Affairs.

Careful, that's why we have a Bureau of Sabotage.
