George, you need to be dead to be a statesman

George Osborne, the former Chancellor, has taken on another paid job in America on top of his role of being an MP.

Mr Osborne has become Arizona State University’s first Kissinger Fellow where he will be paid to sharpen his “skills as a statesman”.

And this rather shows the error of having people be politicians as they’re graduating out of nappies, doesn’t it?

Perhaps moving to a system where people have done something else first, as we used to, might bear fruit? You know, instead of learning how to do it after they’re fucked up and resigned?
