Yours, etc

Sir, – I have the solution to all our nation's troubles. All we need to do is have the people who write letters to The Irish Times run the country. They appear to know absolutely everything about how our little state should be organised. What's more, we won't need offices or cars or ancillary staff or advisers as they already know it all without having to leave the comfort of their own sofa. No elections would be needed as these people don't need to be answerable to anyone for their decisions, except of course to the other experts who write to The Irish Times. – Yours, etc,
