Spotlight on Martin advisers

Interesting article in the Globe today about Martin's fortunes, here. The part that caught my eye focussed on Martin's advisers, what the author refers to as "the Board." It has frequently occurred to me, whenever I see a Tim Murphy or a Scott Reid in front of the cameras, to wonder just where are Martin's senior mandarins? Where are the grizzled veterans who have been there, fought the wars and won? Where is the wisdom to be found in this lot? Possibly too little too late to be bringing in new advisers at this stage but it is difficult to say that this crowd has served him well. If I were Martin, I would certainly be looking for some new advice.
