Quote Of The Day

25 Oct

It could be the quote of the year though given how true it is.  The article was highlighted to me (thanks D) but I may even add the blog to my blogroll.  The article had this truism:

He detects a growing dissatisfaction of citizens with the behaviour of their elected representatives and the practical results of democratic decision-making. To ordinary citizens, democracy can appear to be the game of a remote political class engaged in keeping itself employed and wasting taxpayers’ money on white elephants.

The last line epitomises the Old Boys Network here in Invercargill (which reaches beyond ICC alone).

I wish I had more time because the article deserves more attention even though it is referencing central government democracy.  Anyone have a speech to text converter?
