You want to be Prime Minister, don't you?
« If that is what you want, then you’d better learn the way to 10, Downing Street, don’t you think so?
The first step is to become an M.P. You don’t know what an M.P is? You’ve heard of the House of Commons, haven’t you? Well, that’s what an M.P is – a Member of Parliament, which means that he or she sits in the House of Commons. And to get there, he or she must be elected as the representative of one of the 650 constituencies.”
“And that means being a member of one of the two parties, doesn’t it?”
“It sure does! Your chances of being elected are tiny if you do not belong to the Conservative or to the Labour Party. Moreover, supposing the party has chosen you to be its candidate , you must deposit £1,000 to stand in a general election. If you don’t get at least 12% of the votes, then your money is lost.”
“Is it? Well, I suppose I’d better try something else for a living!”
