I think the majority of them are thick as pig shit which is why we only see the brightest dozen or so.

I would love to see a version of question time where the panel was picked at random and no one could refuse. 

Let the public see what kind of moronic twats are really sitting in the commons.

The towering intellects of David Davis and  that ghastly Rudd woman are among the brightest, you think? :CryBaby:  

Shocking thought.

Exactly. Makes you wonder what the third XV are like!

David Davis is pretty much my favourite MP. He seems to be the only person in parliament with any respect for traditional British values and liberties.

That's as may be (you would have hoped those things you mention would be more common), but towering intellect he is not. I don't dislike him either, but his Kilroy-Silk-style vanity and lack of intellectual rigour is a big disadvantage in that key Brexit role, He probably doesn't need to be a rocket scientist, but he does need enough self-awareness to know his limitations.

I hope he has MUCH brighter advisers, but that doesn't appear to be the case so far, either that or his advisers are actually working against him and he's a patsy.

And the media smear campaign of selective edits and misrepresentations.

MPs tell of the strain of juggling parenthood and work in Parliament - and the toll their job can take on family life.

 

how exactly do they think the rest of us cope?  Bloody self-entitled twats. 

Money aside, I think there's two personality types that are drawn to politics. There's the narcissist who loves seeing their own image in the media and assumes that what works for them works equally well for all their constituents, and theres the genuine type who wants to save the world, who believes they're doing some sort of God's work on behalf of the electorate.

In both cases there's a good chance it's going to lead to a bit of a martyr complex, thus "poor me, look at what I have to suffer in my work for you ungrateful bastards".

And as any good salesman knows, it helps if you believe your own bullshit.

Could this be classed as inciting the overthrow of the New Zealand government?

      I don't want to write too much about my employer...
      However it's in an industry that until about twenty years ago was done by civil servants but is now privatised..
      The job absolutedly does my nut in. There are forms for everything and it's so hard to get something done as I have to get so many people to agree to it. It's just so frustrating spending days on something then the whole project gets scuppered because someone says "no". Then you have to handle people with kid gloves. Sometimes someone makes bad decisions and you have to humour them and try and avoid the eventual fall out. 
      As a comparison the family company has few decision makers and decisions are made *quickly*. 
      I see issues at work that I really really wish I could resolve. However it's an uphill battle trying to resolve them. It's CV time for me.

      They are planning to completely break the link between income and taxation. The latest plan is to base it on age. 
      https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-44621047
      A new tax for the over-40s in England should be introduced to help pay for elderly care for all, MPs say.
      Retired people should also be made to pay it if they have lucrative pensions or investments, two influential House of Commons' committees said.
      The contribution - dubbed a social care premium by MPs - could then be used to ensure everyone who needs support in their old age gets it.
      It comes as ministers are considering how to reform social care.
