And another thing..

I'm struck by a parallel.....
"There's no point giving aid to Africa - the corrupt dictators will only use it to buy themselves more Mercedes" (no handy reference, but stick Africa aid wasted Mercedes into Google & you'll find plenty)
& an argument a very wise university tutor of mine reported 30 years ago:
"There's no point putting baths into council houses - they'll only use them to keep coal in."
It was lousy logic then, & it's lousy logic now.
