Haven't you noticed, Graham, it's happening across the board, in every "arena", in all walks of life, and all across the country? No stone is left unturned for more than a couple of days of peace and quiet. As you say, you never know what's going to happen next. All very unsettling for the Common Citizenry, of course (perhaps that's why "they" do it ... you know, just to keep everyone a bit off-balance, as it were).
I think they're calling it reform
. Myself, I think I could come up with a much more descriptive term!
Perhaps it's a pity that we don't have engineers at the helm, as it were (you know, practical
people). Instead of whatever it is our helmsmen claim to be.
