Our political class, or distinct lack thereof

by

Alison Loat pulls together various strands to consider turnover and experience in the House of Commons.

So is it a problem? Maybe, maybe not. It’s a good thing to have fresh minds and a comparatively open political system. Furthermore, it’s unclear how realistically we can change it even if we wanted to (although better HR management in politics would be a most welcome change). To paraphrase a wiser observer than myself, I guess the real question is whether our Parliament is too transient to properly do its job.
