Fifth Floor Flunkies And Our Airhead Members Of Parliament

Why do we elect politicians only to have them listen to people we never elected? Why are our parliaments essentially run by bands of people who were never elected? We are sick of advisors!

We elect politicians to exercise judgement and not to take advice. If the sole purpose of political leaders is to “take advice” then what the hell are they there for and paid for. We could just dispense with these pretentious peacocks and just have — unelected — technocratic government; the dream of the bureaucrat and the expert class.
