Meaningless high priorities.

An interesting advert in the latest Economist for HM Treasury.

It is advertising jobs in 'The Prime Minister's Delivery Unit', and says:
You will have specialist knowledge of delivery in one of the Government's priority areas - Education, Health, Environment, Crime, Employment, Global Conflict or the Economy.
If these are the Government's high-priority areas, what are their low priority areas? The above must encapsulate most of what the Government does. It cannot be a list of high priorities; it is far too well-spread.

It will be interesting to see which of these are the real priorities when the time for budgetary cuts comes. My guesses: Education and Health will be least affected. Global Conflict (whatever that includes) and Crime most affected.
