    Default 'Termination for Imbecility'

    At a Tuesday night state dinner at the Kremlin in honor of German President Christian Wulff, a guest found an earthworm crawling across his salad plate. He posted a photo of the beast on Twitter -- and has now found himself in hot water.
    Dmitry Zelenin, the governor of the Tver Oblast region, took a photo of the worm as it crawled across his salad plate before posted it on his Twitter account later.
    Unfortunately for Zelenin, not everyone found the incident particularly amusing. The Kremlin's top foreign policy adviser, Sergei Prikhodko, took Zelenin to task on Wednesday, saying that a law should be introduced allowing for governors to be subject to "termination for imbecility." He added: "I won't even comment on irresponsibility and foolishness." Zelenin quickly removed the Twitter post and photo.

    So, the Russian Top Policy Advisor believes a law should be introduced to sack a politician (governor) for being an Imbecile. If we had such a law here we would not have many politicians.

    Of course, termination can have a meaning other than sacking - which might be an even better solution for the inmates of Leinster House.

    Anyhoo , must agree with Cael for a change,
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. Sir Winston Churchill

    That is another way of looking at it.

    That is the only way of looking at it.

    We wouldn't be where we are now if our politicians were mortally afraid of screwing up.
