Ig­no­rance to the fore over paraquat

Re: “Paraquat green light un­der scru­tiny by hu­man rights com­mis­sion”, Na­tional, June 11.

The story says: “We have filed a com­plaint against the Agri­cul­ture Depart­ment be­cause it used to say that it could not de­cide whether to ban paraquat since it lacked ex­per­tise in the field.”

This sums up many prob­lems. De­clare ig­no­rance, and choose not to learn what you should al­ready know, or try to know about your job, as an ex­cuse to do noth­ing. No in­tegrity, not over­sight, no ac­tion, and no­body do­ing their job. This in­volves slowly killing the pop­u­la­tion ... Up next, the blame game.
