What utter rubbish.
Closures of hospitals/wards
The Government wants us to work up to 70 - 100 years
There's always a story about a politician love triangle relationship
They want kids to go to State Schools and they send their kids into Private Schools
Were not helpful when there was recent floodings
Also they make promises they can't keep.
Not to mention Wars

What's your opinion on all of this Karen?

I don't trust them!
Scottish students don't pay university fees
100 years? Based on what facts?
There's always a story about love triangles - everywhere
Welsh/Scottish/Cornish/Devon towns have been flooded regularly for over 50 years. And got the fuck on with it.
Politicians and promises have never mixed. Ever.
War is led by greed. Greed is led by politics. Politics is led by greed.
When are you actually going to read the facts about any of the things you post about?
Generally speaking... yes, I do trust our MPs. That Maria Miller comes across as an arrogant so-and-so though.
It's not healthy to have a political class that isn't answerable to investigative journalists. But nor is it healthy to put everyone into a state of paranoia... and I think we're hounding our politicians too much now. .
Actually I can see a parallel here.
Like a lot of politicians do, Karen canvassed for opinions on whether she should continue posting or not, received a less than enthusiastic response and carried on regardless.
Karen Samuel, MP for Bromley?
So become an MP (It has cost her, her job and salary as a cabinet minister)
Too many children go to university to study stupid subjects that have no real use in the real world
So vote against it
Never seen any evidence of that
And no one in your office has ever played away (well they wouldn't with you would they)
So send your kids to Private schools
And you expected to see Cameron driving JCB ?
You promise not to post crap, But you can't keep it
Lets not then
I think our MP's are probably as good a mix as the general population. I don't think they all put themselves forward for Parliament for the expenses or perks, that is just silly talk. They have foibles and make mistakes as anyone does but they have to understand that they are answerable to the public who pay them. Like the general population there will be some crooks!
Certainly I do believe that some are deliberately chosen by their parties as highly suitable candidates for top jobs but to my mind that is no different from any other profession. I honestly believe that choosing someone because of the school or university they went to just does not happen as the bottom line is personal capability to do the top job under public scrutiny.
I don't quite agree with what you say about the public school connection Martenkay. So many top politicians have been to Eton or Harrow or Westminster Boy's School because those sort of establishments form a network that greases wheels. It'a a bit naive to think they don't
I do agree it's not quite that simple though. Anyone who wants to do into politics as a career will take the kind of courses that will help them do the job: Economics, PPE etc. It's no different to taking chemistry and becoming a chemist.
Maybe those schools give people the training to become upstanding people.
I vaguely remember a chemist becoming Prime Minister
