There's long games of political manouvering

Then there's the sort of thing like Brexit or other impasses that actually involve compromise and long periods in rooms with people you might not care for, not, like or annoy the hell out of you on principal.

I think a lot of them spend too many months basking in their accomplishment of getting elected and a sense of their own importance, and expect to be sitting at a desk fawned over while they sign things and end up dithering while they collect a huge salary (and gifts from contacts in business) and push paper around your desk (and usually off the desk into the bin when no ones looking) when it becomes apparent the work doesn't involve 'changing the world with a hand gesture and (what their PR person has settled on as) the best photogenic smile they are capable of.
