    But there is none so blind as those who cannot see.

    Most people when they play cards remove the jokers from the pack, rather than use them to do the negotiations.

    So you want to increase government spending hiring all the people to do those jobs? But presumably when they increase taxes you'll complain.

    Struggling to understand your point of view.
    Are you suggesting that as we can't know the future, there is no point in preparing for possible outcomes?
    I take it you don't own any insurance products then?

    Any modest logistical and managerial costs would be more than made up for by the improvement to the environment etc.
