Roy Finchett

For a greater part of my adult life I harboured an ambition to write a book, but the question was - write about what? I chose government, resulting from a life times' experience of witnessing their promises, policies, claims and deceptions. My conclusion: governments have failed more than they have succeeded. Since my formative years I have believed - "life is what you make it". It's the lead role of government to make something of our country!


About Book

The relationship between a government and its people is determined by its policies, whether they succeed or fail. Public opinion is fickle. Once elected, the nation's guardian and financial housekeeper charts a course of its own making, allowing for few, if any, changes to a political ideology it claims to embrace. Acknowledging policy failure is always for the future and not the present. 

Consequently, creating the impression of good government is vital. Rampant "spin" is deployed to smooth over inefficiencies and to mask failure. True accountability, together with genuine transparency, has been cloaked. Faith in government and the political establishment has eroded. Removing antiquity from within government is long overdue!
