Politics is the art of looking for trouble …

Groucho Marx via Execupundit:

“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it, misdiagnosing it, and then misapplying the wrong remedies.”

Our Home Secretary’s skin-crawlingly poisonous plan to force firms to declare their foreign workers comes to mind.

That can hardly be a way to build a successful, global-trading economy. It’s no way to retain the country’s “soft power” advantage. And, it’s certainly no way to fund any pretence at hard power.
