The resignation of Chris Huhne offers a great opportunity to bring together the Departments of Energy and Transport and add in Communications which has been lost in the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (now almost totally pre-occupied with the run up to the Olympics)  as a Department for Infrastructure - tasked to encourage the private sector investment we need (including from overseas sovereign wealth funds) to do as our ancestors did and use recession as an opportunity to get better quality at lower cost when building for the future.

There are many other benefits to gained from using such a restructuring to remove duplication of effort, from Whitehall overheads through infrastructure sharing  (including, but not just, for fixed and mobile broadband) to digging up the roads and countryside.
