There is much to say on the current politician turmoil… but I will leave it for later (maybe), just not time right now.
However I want to comment the beginning of the article:
I don’t believe that “having to live on the same income and means as his constituents was probably fairly in touch with their concerns and problems”. Because if you agree with that, then only a factory-worker-politician will be able to deal with factory-workers, only former train manager would be able to deal with the train systems issues…etc.
