    But we tend to be the sort that wouldn't go into politics to save our lives.  

    Like gardeners.  I think in terms of decades and centuries when working with soils.  Erosion?  Unacceptable.  Resource depletion?  Not on my watch.

    Politicians don't look much past the next poll or the next election, not these days.  There's never been any real reason for them to do so as they won't be around to pick up the pieces and they know it.

    Sad.  I've always thought that a Constitutional, Parliamentary Monarchy had its advantages.  At least the monarch has to think of his or her lifespan, at the minimum.
