Garbage Out Garbage In

Happy as I am that Michael Martin has defenestrated himself from his position as Speaker and that a sizeable percentage of current MPs will not be sitting in the next parliament, I am not filled with confidence that the British political system will change radically for the better.

I fear that the new intake of MPs will be even worse than the current lot. Prepare yourself for the influx of a fresh tranche of the Political Class, people with little or no experience outside politics: people who've been to university and then worked their way through a variety of routes - internships, think-tanks, local government, trade unions, PR, the media, occasionally the law.

Unless something is done to change this, the situation won't really change.
