Wishful thinking, our prime minister is so obtuse he doesn't even know what is going on. I always like politicians who say "the people" as if they have a direct line into the thinking of people. I can't remember a worse time for our country and look back to the time of the 6th day war when I was proud at what we had achieved. Nowadays I am more often ashamed than proud. If only we had a leader who could get us out of the trouble we are in.
