Left and right

I recently left the public sector to work in the private sector and I have noticed a strange shift in my political interest. When I was a civil servant I was mightily interested in politics because I could understand the background to it. I could see how an economic fact was turned into a political story. Now that I have to work more - good old lazy days - I seem to care less. I would probably read the headlines and believe that that was the truth. What is a political truth anyway?

Only few weeks are between public and private sector and already Westminster appears as an ivory tower far from everyday man's concerns. Maybe that was always the case, I just didn't realise it.

I am confused.
