WHAT READERS THINK Nov. 26: Deeply skeptical, and other letters to the editor

I don’t want to condone Nigel Wright’s actions, but I do believe he felt what he was doing was right (it didn’t cost the taxpayers anything) and expedient.

His business background was likely his undoing, as each day in the private sector individuals search for the best solution to a multitude of problems and many are delegated the power to act on their own initiative.

Political insiders and government workers understand this is not how problems are solved in their workplaces: Decisions are made at the very top and woe betide anyone who forgets that.
