It's this sort of thing, on all sides, that gets to me: Chuka Umunna as shadow business secretary? Uniquely qualified with his lifetime experience in running a successful business. see here: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Chuka_Umunna
At least he has had some (although a brief 8 years) life experience beyond education. There are far worse examples than Chuka Umunna. David Cameron for example who went straight into politics as a researcher from doing his PPE degree. Or George Osborne who did the same (unless you want to count a few months towel folding in Selfridges as life experience). These are arguably the two most powerful men in modern politics but haven't had a proper job between them.
