Dock a Minister's pension if a department doesn't meet its goals

A department has goals and targets to meet under the program of government.  Departmental Ministers and civil servants should have their future pensions docked if the goals are not reached.

The amount of pension docked must be substantial - in the region of 90% of future pension eligibility ensuring that they get next to no pension in retirement other than the basic state pension

Why the contribution is important

This will force responsiblity on to those in charge of departments.  There can be no hiding place and the no reward for failure.

    Also, Ministers should be accountable for their time running Government Departments. Huge mistakes are made time and again and allowed to then disappear by having a re-shuffle within Government Departments. People in power should be held accountable for their actions, not simply moved on without consequence.
