Head of Nail. Hammer. Clink!

As usual, Ed Walsh of UL hits the nail on the head here. Most interesting point I thought was the fact that, unlike most countries, our political system point blank refuses to recruit talented people who have succeeded internationally. Our electoral system is geared against anyone but the long haul local slogger, as if this is a more noble pursuit even if they are not up to the needs of running a 21st century society.

Talented businessmen who are looking for something to do, and could be brought into government are Fingers, Fitzer and Seanie.
