I know that this is an unorthodox view, but I do not view the best minds as the best debaters. Of course any political team needs it's debaters.
However, I view the best poltical minds to suggest our futures to be the creatives. And the best of them become (aged 18) musical stars (and aged 40)
What worries me is that the ones who shine by their early twenties can have all the record awards, champagne, shags, and total good vibe, which is
totally seductive. Later they discover that they are not allowed to do politics, because they are a 'star' and that seduces the electorate.
The implications are that if you want to be heard, don't get a record contract.
My question: Does the record industry care? Or is this a major shareholder conspiracy, we don't want anyone who will destroy the dividends type
thing. I shouldn't say that because records are left wing, but I don't think anyone should be beyond reproach. Branson dunnit!!!!!!
