MP Dr Nick Palmer
makes a worrying point in his chat to VNUnet.com. Barely any MPs have hands on
technical experience and, in an increasingly IT dominated world, this doesn’t
bode well for the future.
Now you could say that there’s no need, the Sir Humphries of this world have enough specialists to deal with any problems in formulating law. But that misses the point. Some of the misinformation that members of the public believe is almost certainly reflected in their MPs and I wouldn’t want to rely on the civil service to pull us out of every hole.
So if you’re an IT administrator think about a career in the mother of all Parliaments. Your country needs you.
