lets hope he's a better politician then he is comedian, I went to one of his shows a few years back, feck me he's stealing a living, I was bored $hitless. Saying that, I was well impressed when he ran all those marathons. I've run a marathon, wouldn't do it again. Running 27 marathons in 27 days is remarkable.

What credentials of Izzard are you ridiculing?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry have you seen him, he’s a man who dresses like a woman and wears bright red lipstick when it suits him
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Those aren't credentials, are they?

How does how he chooses to present himself affect his suitability for the role in question?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes they are, he chooses to present himself based on his agenda

But like I say it’s better than the racist they recently hired.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Agree, that thing they hired previously was vile. Made all those disgusting comments that white people were all racists by association, irrespective of wealth or background. Labour obviously didn’t deem that offensive when offering her/him the role. They only withdrew it when he/she was found to have made offensive comments about homosexuals and lesbians.

I just don’t get the celebrity hires, there are folk qualified to do these roles however they choose cretinous celebrities who lack any form of credibility

I'm not even sure that many currently serving MPs are that much more qualified than celebrities. Most of them are just toffs who've gone to the right schools and got in with the right people.

I dont like professional MPs tbf. For one it entrenches a political class but also the idea of representative democracy is that you have many parts of the whole society.

If too many celebs start entering politics the viewpoint of the entertainment industry would be heavily over represented

Cabinet ministers should have experience on specialism in their area I guess.

They obviously start somewhere but I think it would be naive to assume they rise through the ranks purely on merit.

Take Cameron, Osbourne and Johnson

Fair enough MMGP, personally I just can't agree with that

mp's rising through the ranks on merit? Rare occurence

Its usually a mixture of longevity, popularity and telly.

We worship her because she is our royal head of state and cherished Queen
