>I don't actually see them as all that bizarre. After all, it's easy tosee why Sheppard would want to talk to as many people as possible to
see what they think, and why he would want to do so in private. Doing
so formally might seem a little odd, but then, the alternative is
doing so informally. Which is more democratic?>
Could you explain a bit more about the democracy of this situation,
Alan? In particular, who elected (or what democractically elected body
appointed) Sheppard to play this role in Australia?
I can understand how a director casting a play or a movie, or an
employer hiring an accountant or a cleaner, might adopt such a
procedure, but claiming that it has anything to do with democracy
seems to indicate a novel approach to democracy. You probably should
share this concept with the world.
