Work ethic amongst MP’s? Well to be honest I don’t believe there is one. We have all heard the saying that MP’s are only in it for what they can get out of it, well now I have come across a post that sums that up in the most eloquent of terms.
The brilliant Raedwald writes at Orphans of Liberty…
Some 55% of this pampered elite think politics is a career and have ambitions to become ministers. 100% of them think being an MP is about them, their own self-interest, ambitions and welfare, and that being an MP is about what you can screw out of the job rather than what you can bring to the common good. I’ll bet not a single one has even my own limited experience of hard work, let alone any understanding of the position of their constituents. Apparatchiks, blow-ins and parachutists, narcissistic and avaricious little turds, they represent the preferred lobby-fodder of the metropolitan party HQs; with no experience beyond playing politics at university, and from comfortable and shielded upbringings, they have cultivated mediocrity and elevated sycophancy to a virtue. These are Oborne’s Political Class. These are our enemy.
The author has hit the nail right on the head…do go and read the whole article, it brilliantly puts it all into worldly perspective.
