How smart are our politicians?

Published 09/10/2015

Just had a thought. Surely we want our politicians to be intelligent and capable enough to do a difficult job?

So shouldn't they tell us their educational qualifications and work experience when they ask us to vote for them?

These could be available on the party websites - a bit like giving us their CV.

Wonder why they don't do that?
