    I am not sure the appointment would serve SL better. Most of her time would be spent to further develop her business dealing with tax payer funded utilities such as phones, fax and office space.It would certainly enhance the image of her brand and foriegn exchange earned as a result of this would also remain overseas as these companies never bring the capital back to the country.
