Being a Tory parliamentary intern

I should belatedly point you to this piece in The Times by Ryan Shorthouse last week:

"Am I really bitter that I don’t have a city starting salary? Slightly. But we young Tories are more bothered about status than money. Money, in excess, is ugly. Being a businessman is hardly appealing. Far better to be a lawyer or an academic. Even a GP. These are the respected in society. The children of Thatcher are impressed by how much can be achieved rather than by the depth of a bank account. Thankfully, we have the support base to do that."
