Politics isn’t life
I FOUND your picture of the group of political students to the House of Commons and the statement by one of their number quite depressing (The Press, December 7).
I had not realised that political theory is taught as a separate subject in schools.
How many of the children pictured, I wonder, will follow the example of our present party leaders and read philosophy, politics and economics (PPE) at university then serve their time as “bag carriers” and “special advisers” to ministers before themselves becoming MPs, well qualified in the dirty business of politics but woefully ignorant of real life.
