This is a question I often ask myself.
When I think about the current political goings on, not just here in the UK but worldwide it seems, everything is falling apart. Spain and Greece have doubts about the Euro, France is swinging to the left, top entertainment in the UK is the Levinson Enquiry and Prime Minister Cameron cannot differentiate between loving and laughing.
Maybe I am getting old, but I find the current set of politicians and economists have as much control over what they do and say as they have control of the weather.
This must be a call to all cyberneticists out there to design political and economic robots that can actually think to replace this generation of mal-programmed Etonians.
