Masterminding media careers

Madam -- What an inspiring breath of fresh air from TV3 in its choice of quiz master for the new Celebrity Mastermind programme, the former Justice Minister Nora Owen. How satisfying it must be for former politicians in receipt of handsome pensions to know that those who aspire to work in radio and TV can look to a rosy future.

I would have thought that in these recessionary times these well remunerated, pensioned-off politicians, and TV stations, would be more cognisant of the tsunami of unemployed in our midst and behave accordingly.
