Our leaders are insufficiently rounded and horny of hand. From the BBC:
A person who has never toiled at grimy, physical or monotonous labour has somehow missed out. It goes beyond career development, to the idea of shaping a more rounded person.
The three main party political leaders have at times been accused of failing the proper job test. They are perceived to be career politicians who have done nothing outside media or politics.
For MP Dennis Skinner, who worked as a miner for 21 years, parliament has become far too homogeneous. "It's a very narrow band in parliament. A lot more people used to come from different areas of work when I was first an MP." He believes his time working in the pits gave him "hinterland".
Shouldn't that be "unterland"? In any case, Mr Skinner's hinterland is behind him.
In the old days MPs never needed hinterland -- they made do with gravitas.
