However, the whole idea of democracy is that they can only achieve (a) if they
do what we want them to do (or, to put it more completely, manage to convince
a sufficient number of those of us that feel strongly enough to vote that they
are less bad than the alternatives).

Also, if voters were all more rational, you'd think how well they ran the
country would affect who we voted for - but sadly, the electorate seems quite
keen to vote in whoever offers them the best service/tax ration (see b)

So, in a roundabout way, it's all our fault.
