    Unfortunately eggplant, too often the politicians do not get the sack (or as I say the boot) Sadly, the electorate too often votes the same cats back into office over and over again.

    I am reminded of the former saying: The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

    In regards to how much is spent on paying politicians and former politicians salaries? Even if we were to stop paying all politicians and all benefits to former politicians it wouldn't make a dent in the debt. In real terms: You wouldn't even notice it had been done. Now how bad is the situation when that is true?
    Of course it's their fault. They have not done their jobs properly. When you don't do your job properly, you get the sack.
    unfortunately this is a problem in all counties that have democratic govt., including oz.
    It would be small in comparing to the national debt. But it's their fault their pay should be cut.
    TOO MUCH.
