    Its time for the govt. to stop this foolishness to satisfy the rich and famous. Felix my man when are you going to have something similar for the plumbers, labourers and the like. I guess with these people the prestige would not be there. This is the same with policial appointments, never will go to the common Joe or Jill and its not because they do not have the common sense to do the jobs.
