We Must Keep the Politicians in Politics

A few weeks ago I decried the local tendency for politicians to absolve themselves of their responsibility by looking to appointed officials to protect them, and us, from their own bad judgement.

It turns out that it's not just a cop-out indulged in by local politicians. In the UK more than a few elected officials have also decided to champion the idea of hiding behind appointed officials to protect us and them from themselves.
