    It is a problem with both Governments. As soon as a party wins an election, a few self promoters “ambush” the Prime Minister and some of his Ministers and put a rope around them so that nobody else can get to them. Then, these self promoters persuade the PM not to ” deal” with certain persons who can help the Government move forward. And they succeed in this deception! Think of the number of experienced people who could give this Government advice, and ask yourself:where are they? Well, they have become estranged from the Government and choose to stay far from the maddening crowd, while the “ship jumpers” do their thing. Time will tell.
