3. I have noticed this problem

UK politics is not attracting the best and brightest right now. There are many reasons for this such as the tribalism of the political parties, political parties not being attractive enough to join for most people and political activism being difficult to fit with other commitments for most people. The unpopularity of politicians, deserved as it may be is also a deterrent. Not to mention how wildly uninformed the general public is about any issue with a degree of complexity, which is reflected in our politicians.

It's a difficult, complex problem, but it's clearly a major problem that we have with politics in this country.
