I Resemble That Remark
The ever wonderful Wiley Miller and Non Sequitur.
One time chatting with a rep from an industry association (and for a big IT outfit) he remarked we public servants seemed a bit afraid of the industry reps. I replied 'That's because you have better access to our Minister than we do.' He laughed and acknowledged the truth of that. I also I once had a lobbyist offer to lobby my Minister on behalf of a policy that I was working on. Regretably (and my regret is genuine - lobbyists aren't always wrong), I had to decline the offer.
