A few weeks ago, I wrote about the possibility of the ultimate Quango…a Quisling Quango to run Norn Iron during Direct Rule. I think I might have described the participants as the usual hangers on from civic society, academia etc.
I may have given the impression that I see such people in a very negative light and might even hold them in total contempt. Nothing could be further from the truth. I would welcome our unelected alien overlords as they are clearly superior to mere mortals.
I notice over on Slugger O’Toole, an academic is floating the idea of “hiring in talent” in the event of the main parties not being able to agree to work together.
These concepts are unrelated.
