Modern politics is a disgrace
ISN T it strange? Employees engaged in most major businesses are expected to possess qualifications relevant to their work. Yet politicians elected to represent the electorate for most part sit in parliament without qualifications for the task in hand.

Surely it is right to expect Members of Parliament, and especially ministers, to possess qualifications in economy, management and use of logic that they become best acquainted with the important task of governing the country?

Modern politics is a disgrace, much more so than 50 years ago when conscientious statesmen were born to the task with well-being of the country foremost in their minds.

Nowadays sleaze obscures the art of logic and it is more relevant for MPs' to expect increased salaries (they don't do badly really, do they?), uppermost in their minds untouchable gold-plated pensions, manipulated expenses (a practice as old as the hills) and still have the cheek to say they are doing nothing wrong.
