"Senior management immediately hired a firm of consultants to study the Australian team's structure"

I consider this analogy to describe the Australian Government very well.

It is common practice now for Governments to hire firms to advise bureaucracy on the merits of their generally inane ideas.

Of course the outcome is more often than not, in favour of the BS, because guess what………the firm hired to analyse the idea, is made of ex-bureaucrats who were either fired or forced into retirement from the Government.

Plus when it’s made public that the BS idea was in fact BS….the Government blame the hired firm.

All of this is supposed to make us feel better because our elected officials didn’t seem to waste the money on themselves, they invested it in a company that they thought could be trusted, but of course was tainted with the same ineptitude
I don’t know what makes me shudder more…..the fact that our Governments treat us the way they do….or the fact that we put up with it.

Sad, but true.

Richard Vaughan.
