Christian Wulff, Ed Milliband - what do they have in common?

At first glance one would think that the newly-elected President of Germany and the new leader of the British Labour party do not have much in common. But closer inspection shows that in both cases these two 'career' politicians have no (Wulff) or very little experience outside politics. Unfortunately the current system of 'democracy' as practised in most countries gives undue influence to political parties and a subsidised political class that effectively guarantees that people such as these increasingly dominate the political landscape.
