Only TV and Movies have good presidents/prime ministers. In real life we get sociopaths. I think this is a good indication of where things are going. Corporations become accountable to no one, because they can move to a different country, and take jobs with them.
Too idealistic and naive. Prime Minister Tom Dawkins could only exist on the screen. As we all know, in a Neoliberal regime, Big Business always wins. Journalists are silenced and people's vote does not count. Blimey, there's money to be made. As Maggie put it, "There is no such thing as a society". There, you lose.
