Topic - A Career in Politics

mypyrex - on 02 Mar 2013
I've long thought that one of the problems with politics nowadays is that, irrespective of party, people enter politics a) at too young an age and b) regard politics as part of their career progression.

Years ago people stood for election after a lifetime in the "university of life" be it the military, industry, business, profession or as a trade union member. Consequently they had a wealth of experience upon which to draw in order to serve in parliament. Politics was seen as a way of serving the community and something of a pinnacle of one's working life. I feel that nowadays people come out of university, sometimes with some obscure degree, and enter politics because it might look good on their CV and no longer do it out of any sense of duty.
