    I'm guessing that for discretionary places you look at results AND performance. The results part is fine, it's the second part where there is no transparency.

    This is a good time in the calendar.

    In terms of results, we can point to successful nations that are highly decentralised and others that are centralised. For me that makes the argument irrelevant. In an ideal world you'd have both...

    Your analogy lol.

    Er, no. Passing a test is simply that, an indication that a standard has been met. Certainly plenty of bad drivers carrying a license to prove that. But better than not...

    I'm pretty sure you still need to practice, pass a theory and a practical test before you can drive; even a Fiesta.
