As a teenager I recall seeing a liberal conference report on TV and a man going into details about clauses in the party constitution and what could and could not be done. A real ‘political animal’ whose mind was given to the minutiae of the party in order to make sure it functioned as it was supposed to do and not be the plaything of transient leaderships.
I don’t know anyone in business who is not also political. No lawyer nor organisation that does not have a political dimension. Everyone is making decisions and playing games dependent upon what they perceive are the hindrances to their achieving their goals.
Politics used to be about society,but no longer.
