Something for New Zealand Spads to remember

There are literally hundreds of people like this playing in politics. They really should take note:

The culture of our politics is now such that some bright graduates, armed only with a BlackBerry and the works of Robert Caro on LBJ, think they are hardened political professionals or “players” rather than bag carriers. It is corrosive as well as silly. And it adds to the sense that politics has become a big game for the amusement of those involved, which considering the scale of the challenges facing this country it really shouldn’t be.
