I think one of the pre-requisites of being UK Prime Minister is that MI5 can do a full check on you and find no obvious dirt.
The only people who have no obvious dirt (aka have not lived) are entitled political elite types who have been nurtured into their current form by public schools and none-jobs awarded by friends from said public schools.
The resulting individual is intelligent, motivated and hard working but due to them never having "lived" (succeeded or FAILED) in a true meritocracy (the real world); they are monumentally naive and are therefore controllable by the Political Party, their supporters, lobbyists, their advisers , financiers and the various immortal groups and societies they are inducted into as PM.
Imagine the PM/POTUS as the Maitre D' at the Banquet of Democracy- they run the "front house" but others set the menu, provide the food, own the building etc.
Very good analogy, don't forget 'the investors' as well.edit on 24-4-2015 by pikestaff because: (no reason given)miss spelt 'forget'edit on 24-4-2015 by pikestaff because: (no reason given)

I don't think anyone controls them, I think they are just out of touch with reality.
