It\’s because he\’s an airhead:
I think that most people who go into politics do so in the belief that they can make the world a better place.
Nope. Public Choice.
Now I\’ve actually worked in politics. Been a candidate in a real election, run* the press office for a real party in a real election. We came second in a national election after I had been doing so.
So, you know, I know sorta stuff?
This desire to make a better world stuff? Sure, there\’s a few. All and every candidate of my party for sure**.
The majority? Of the majority of those I\’ve seen going into politics there\’s a vile division between those who think it\’s an easy screw. £60k a year plus exp for fuck all and those who are just looking for any ability at all to tell everyone else what to do.
You might call it the George and Nadine wings of politics.
In fact I would if it were not for the libel laws.
*Clive will righteously argue over \”run\” and correct to \”doing what he\’s told\”.
** That not coppery, nickely, stuff should be engaged there.
