Re: About time
Yes, we had that problem in the UK after Labour were voted out in 2010. It still is a problem. It does seem that lefties can only make their careers in public services rather than the private economy.
Or people who care more about society than themselves are more drawn to public service, while those who care more about themselves than society tend to look instead for money-making opportunities. Then there's also the possibility that people who started their careers under 18 years of a Conservative government may tend to think about public services one way, while those who started their careers under 13 years of New Labour government may tend to think of their responsibilities in different terms. Unsurprisingly, if you're happy with the previous and current government's desire to cut services to those who need them most, you'll take exception to anyone fighting to stop that.
