A career politician is what most modern politicians are.
They are people who enter politics because it pays well and is seen as a gravy train rather than through any great passion or love for politics or a set of principles that they radically believe in.
The career politician will blow in the wind and change their mind on key issues and follow the party line shamelessly.
They see politics as a good way of making money and of course the expenses and the knock on benefits are tremendous.
There are very few conviction or issue politicians left, and this is one of the main differences between politicians today and in the past where many entered politics because they cared and wanted to make a real difference and almost did it as an altruistic act.
