Yes, I am inclined to agree, and this is even more applicable to Italy,
where a referendum on nuclear energy with a predictable outcome is about to
be celebrated.

Moreover, there is even... a rationale behind the choice of not thinking, on
the tunes of "Why should I care about what is going to happen in a few
years? Even I chose to do it, this would mean political suicide, and I would
be replaced by somebody who is not even *tempted* to think about it".
