Re: What a horrible waste of time and money

"enact the expressed will of the people"

The expressed will of around 1/3 of the voting population some of whom then admitted it was just intended as a protest vote. As Kipling wrote

Holy priesthood, holy king or holy people's will

Have no truck with the senseless thing - order the guns and kill!

Just the expression "people's will" has unpleasant historical echoes. It's irrational, and irrational people who have been stirred up by demagogues do stupid things - as the Athenians and the Germans found out. Stuff Michael Gov e and his anti-academic views, they weren't exactly good for education. We need some real experts, and not politicians parroting whatever their backers have told them to say.
