With the apparent swing towards a technocratic style of government in Greece and now Italy where people who are supposedly professionally qualified to decide or direct a particular direction do so from a government level. Is it possible that we as a nation should consider that politicians have had their day and that the country should be run by those best qualified? Is a technocratic government going to help Greece and Italy, and could it help the UK? Oh! and if Israel decides to start a war with Iran next month... is this going to help matters much? assuming Iran has a nuke.. would they use it on Israel? (I just finished reading a book that says they would).
