Just wanted to throw this one out there, wondered if anyone was feeling as uneasy as me? Is it time that MPs bowed to the fact that, quite often, they do not seem to be up to the job in hand? Watching Andrew Marr this morning, following the ongoing discussions about the financial situation I noted something. Simon Wolfson, the CEO of NEXT is talking common sense, no hyperbole, no histrionics, no blame, no avoidance, just calm, measured, seemingly accurate appraisal of where UK plc is, and where it could be going. He was equally measured, and in my view, on the money, two weeks ago on Question Time. Next up Mr (sorry missed name) of Alchemy Partners, calm, common sense appraisal of situation as it has affected banks ability to invest in projects that they were willing to invest in two weeks ago. These two speakers are followed by Yvette Cooper MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, I think, who spends twice as long trotting out the same lines we have been listening to for a fortnight, and doesn't actually say anything of incisiveness at all. Yes, she has been briefed but does she really know what she is talking about? This is not the first epiphany of this kind I have had recently. Peter Jones, of Dragon's Den fame, talking on Breakfast Television, Alan Sugar, on Football Focus, even bloody Jamie Oliver ffs, all seem to be talking so much common sense, and not only that, seem to be able to take common sense views of how best to approach problems. If you take the view that UK plc could be run like a large company is it not the case that the people least qualified to run the company are the Members of the House of Commons? On top of this I am confident that my MP does not represent my views and that the mechanisms for getting my views known to my MP, and through him, the House of Commons do not seem to work. If on the other hand, UK plc was run as a company, by "masters of industry" we could all, in theory, attend an AGM and make our views known! Not meant as sedition, and perhaps naive in the extreme, but I just wondered, in the current climate, whether others had had the same thoughts, and whether it would make the basis for a thread? Fire away!
