On that basis Peter I'd say that Mutton Dutton would probably make a good walloper - in Queensland perhaps?

Yes and I'm the first to admit that is applies to me too. But at least I'm named after a rather tasty sausage and not some rancid lamb flaps!

The Peter principle is a concept in management theory formulated by educator Laurence J Peter and published in 1969.

It states that the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role.

Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence".

Capitalism and democracy are always in conflict and the history of all capitalist states that have conceded universal suffrage has been, in part at least, a history of that conflict.
The case against capitalism and for a democratic socialist society to replace it is now much stronger than when the vote was first granted almost a century ago,
However the most distressing fact is that many labour governments have done little or nothing with the power provided by the franchise to reduce inequity. Many labour leaders used to apologise for this failure but now boast about it.

And what's worse, he wears it with pride.
