Elephant in the room (letter)by Gerard FloodNews Weekly
, September 10, 2005
John Howard's dominance of Cabinet and government decision-making and agenda-setting is an unsound process, and may or will result in sub-optimal or harmful outcomes, and should be modified.
There are obvious suggestions as to why other Cabinet members are insufficiently influential in pursuit of national imperatives, and as to why the media do not feature this aspect.
I consider this issue to be the "elephant in the room" that no-one wants to mention.Gerard Flood,
