Got a leaflet through my letter-box last night from some local Labour clown scratching around for a vote to get his nose in the trough, normally this would go straight into the recycling but I decided to read it. He is 26. Politics student. Research assistant to 2 x Labour MPs in Westminster for 2 years. Worked in Local Government as diversity something or other no doubt. What life experience does this man possess? What wealth has he created? What service has he carried out in the name of his country? What responsibility has he shouldered? Where has he learned the lesson of his honest mistakes? My question is: is this symptomatic of the current class (or lack of it) of the political elite we are lumbered with? Just professional politicians who can argue blue is black all day long but who actually have no experience of the real world whatsoever.
