Apparition saidCan't we all just agree that all politicians are selfish money hungry narcisisitic bastards that think of nobody but people like themselves?
Nope, sorry. Way too cheap and easy to paint them all with that brush.
well...within the rounding error, giver or take. feel free to post examples of those who are not though!
well, in my country (Denmark) the party that is furthest to the left, actually has rules and policies to prevent its members from becoming career politicians (i.e corrupted by the "parliament environment").
A rotation system allows only two election terms as an MP. Then for at least 4 years (the duration of one term) they should do other political work, like on grass root level, before they can run for parliament again.
They are not allowed to have an income, as a politician, above what the average danish worker makes.
Until recently they didn't feature names or pictures of their candidates on their posters, as they felt their cause or political message was more important than an individual politicians image.
being to the far left, of course a lot of people disagree with their political standpoint, but they are widely respected for their integrity and honesty.
