This guy's awesome.  I met him at an open cloud event recently and he's really inspiring.

"So my call to Francis Maude and his new Public Sector Transparency Board is for them to embrace the idea of mandating not just transparency but open data, and not just open data but open data accompanied by open source code to manipulate it. That's the fastest path to letting sunlight in to the dark corridors of power. "

One of the big problems at the moment is that people just don't know what to do with data. So called data illiteracy. I agree that there should be tools but I think more important would be some sort of mandatory education in school about how to read data and what you can do with it.
