Radical solutions to simple problems

I HAVE two unique and radical suggestions for our new government -- whoever that may be.

1) Just tell the truth. After all, if you tell the truth you never have to remember what you said, and;

2) Have people who are experts in their fields as ministers rather than people who you just like to have a drink with and who have no knowledge -- and, in some cases, no interest -- in their ministries.

I realise that these are radical solutions, and that nobody has thought of them before, otherwise they would have been implemented.

But surely it is worth a go.
