Time to expect more of nation: iLIVE
Whenever Jonathan Jansen writes a column, readers enthuse about his common sense and high values ("Wrong set of values", yesterday).

We have become satisfied with the mediocre. For the most part, we accept sloppy work because "that's just how things are".
It is time we demanded more of ourselves. If everyone did their job properly, less would go wrong. If attention to detail was the norm, people would be more motivated.
