That is so as to get something done.
i do agree there; Democracy is hopeless at getting anything done, as Politicians can only ever think in the short term; will this help us get re elected, what can we do that will grab the headlines? Hence Tony Blair's enthusiasm for waging War, as he thought that it worked for Mrs T, so it ought to make him a national hero too. There's no point planning anything that will only see any fruition in the long term, as they know they won't be in power by then, so why should they let the other lot get the credit? And it also applies the other way round, of course, like how Labour under Gord Brown borrowed ginormous amounts, knowing that they wouldn't have to worry about paying it off, since they knew they hadn't a hope getting re elected. Sometimes it virtually amounts to sabotage.
