If they were any good at business
...they wouldn't be in Government. I always enjoy the fantasyland that is Government ministers counting the golden eggs their latest goose will lay. They don't know how to analyse an offering for its business gains, and over-estimate the width of that path business is going to beat to their door. All too many of them, including our dear PM, have been lifelong politicians, and wouldn't know a hard business fact if it hit them in the chops. It's part of the piquant charm of politicians declaiming on how government should base itself (eg NHS) on business models. How could they possibly know if this is a good idea, will work, is sensible? And yet, poor dears, they persist.
