Government’s incompetence

Sir: The present government has done the unthinkable: it has proved that it is much more incompetent than the previous government. Who would have thought that people like me would yearn for the days when the PPP was in charge? The PML-N’s incompetence in handling the wild-eyed Qadri has done just that. I cannot understand why this government blundered in allowing the Canadian cleric to take full advantage of the situation. Is the government composed of nincompoops only? Couldn’t the prime minister foresee what would happen if the plane was diverted to Lahore? I shudder to think how this government would respond if a major crisis like an invasion of the country took place.
