As if they are the arbiters of sense and reason.
TB delayed his holiday.
If he had not gone at all it would have been shouted long and loud that he didn't trust any of his cabinet and that his 'control freakery' was in full swing.
I he prefer he do what he is doing (he is away bit in daily if not hourly contact with those responsible for the various proceedures here in the UK).
I quite like it that our leadership get a break of some sort.
I like it that they give at least some time to their families and life something at least approaching real life for a week or two (and he is no GWB when it comes to vaccations).
Better that than a stressed out person quietly suffering the damagae or destruction of his family through complete lack of attention on top of everything else.
I like it that they have families.
I like it that they take a break.
I don't think they need to be here 24/7 365.
By that kind of reasoning they should only ever be single men and never leave their desk.
I know certain large corporations take that view (and have a pecking order based on family ties when considering advancement) but I'm glad our country is not led by such people.
IMO we need more reality in our elected government representitives, not less
(and holidays and family life are a little part of that).
