The result is we get almost (I use the word with care, because I am not talking absolutes here) universally hopeless, helpless and useless politicians who fail to offer hope to the country. We can all nominate some exceptions. They do exist. But they are rare. And that must be because of systemic failings in our political system because I meet competent people with political opinions on a day to day basis, many of whom would more than ably rise to the challenges that government presents.
So says the man who insists that government must have much more power. So also says the man who is incapable of seeing the illogic of believing both things at the same time.
