Well said sir !

There have been a number of posts about this week Question Time, which I'm part way through listening and watching now.

A gentleman has just proposed that Ministers should be qualified for the jobs they hold ( his photo is below, I didn't catch his name ).

You know he has a good point ....

In the US, where the executive is separate from the legislature, they can appoint people who actually know something about the department they manage and are generally well qualified and capable.

In the UK we have an ever shrinking pool of MPs with any experience of business or the outside world and a government that has clearly just failed.

It would mean a shake up of the constitution, but it might be needed. ( There is a way round this inn the UK with the house of Lords, but Lords now rarely become important - unless they are political types like Lord Mandelmort ).
