When 'responbility' is removed from the equation...

It is rather clear to everybody that 'demanding' things from government such as shouldering political responsibility for one gross negligence after the other has long become ineffective. The truth is that the GonziPN cabinet, has long abandoned the democratic and constitutional principle of responsibility. Without responsibility there is no accountability nor any transparency left in the public administration. Is this the opposition's fault for demanding a lot but getting very little? Or is it ours for being overly apathetic for far too long? And is it true that countries get the government they deserve?

Personally I don't care if this is intrinsic to Mediterranean culture. I don't care if the Italian or the Greek governments act in a similar manner. It's just not right. It is not something that one should have to put up with as a natural everyday occurrence for that would mean legitimising the abuse of power.
