Government:

Make all government services accessible online

What

All government services should be accessible online so that people can access their information or make changes whenever they want.

Why

People often don't have time to go to the post office, ring daytime hotlines or queue up in council offices.

Not much help for the digitally excluded - the poor, elderly and learning-disabled - who are likely to see face-to-face access diminish leaving them further behind.

Poorly considered online applications and resources can also be huge security liabilities. Especially if they are intended to give access to personal data.

I also feel that the whole .gov thing was designed to improve accessibility, but ended up with lots of great existing stuff being removed.
