There is no party that can run the country efficiently. Good businesses can reduce costs AND increase quality. Why can't the government?written 18th Apr 2005

Adam replies: The whole idea of voting and democracy is that you have the power to choose who you think would "run the country" in the best way. Firstly: you cannot tell the future of the country (who can and can't "run the country") despite what political manifestos might trick you into thinking, and secondly: it is wrong to think that any party or government composed of human beings would be able to "run the country" perfectly - you have the power to decide who you think would make the best job of it.written 19th Apr 2005
