Criteria to be a British politician

Recommended Posts

1.Tall ( to be imposing when dealing with people from bongo bongo land)

2. Photogenic ( must give the right impression of the British people)

3. Use buzzwords like democracy, liberalism, and human rights.

No thinking required, it’s not as if something like Brexit will ever happen

I think the photogenic one is wearing off,as is sanctimonious self righteous virtue signalling.

blair/obama/macron/trudeau are being replaced!people are turning off to these smooth talking snake oil salesmen.

Pantomime season is over and people are thoroughly fed up with buzzwords/corporate bullsh*t bingo/nudge therapy/mainstream(soon to be legacy) media/ constant repetition of news-tv-talent(less)  and (un)reality tv...but the politicians have not yet realised that the mass hyonosis is wearing off

the new mantra is definitely a bit more "shoot from the hip and tell it like it is..even if you don't like it"..hence farage+ trump.

Background/future in finance, law or 'communications'.

Never to have been involved in way or form with the design and creation of anything tangible.

Belief that an 'engineer' is a 'little man who fixes your car', and that a scientist is someone socially challenged whom one would most definitely not invite to one's parties (unless famous, natch).

And finally the biggie:

Belief that a soaring stockmarket index is indication of a successfully run economy...

Ability to say, "to be clear" before giving an answer that avoids the question.

And to preface every utterance with a pause and then "Listen...……………."   (Tony Blair started this one and now all of them do it)

Oxford PPE

Seeing wrong.

Lots of Pols have PPE is not down to their being a closed shop, secret handshake.

Noone wants a PPE grad, so they gravitate towrds Politics.

Always use the interviewer’s first name, and pretend your great friends, like that Retard in one of The Fat Moron’s kitchens.

I will do anything as long as I can fill my own expenses form in. I would need to employ a secretary naturally all cv's over the age of 25 go in the bin. 1 hour per month government attendance and 200 days holiday per year and a 80k salary minimum I would consider this stressful role.

Is everyone giving incorrect answers for a joke?

There are 210 female MPs. How many of them are tall?

I think photogenic ones may be even rarer than the tall ones.

Do you really think democracy is a buzzword?

103 have a STEM background. They probably mix with engineers and scientists a lot more than most people.

They believe soaring house prices are what really matters.

Funny......."Let me be clear"......hear those words and turn off..... unclear and talking without conviction.;)

You could also supplement your income by being on the board of directors, and accept bribes by writing your memoirs.

Double bubble 

I guess I could offer valuable contracts for a nice bung.

I'll be candid here, I was for a while on the Conservative Parliamentary Candidates list.

But after 2 interviews with old school, Moggist style associations and the fact I was already earning £30k more than an MP at the time, I gave up the ghost.

Essentially to be an MP, you either need a private income or to be worth less than £100k per year.
