Kevin Absolutely not! I'm an owner of my own company, I work 80 hours a week and so I a, able to spend whatever time I like doing what I want (within reason). I couldn't afford to waste 4 years or more of my peak earning years on politics, having invested 30 years of my life to get where I am now. In 10 years time my circumstances might be right, but I've got zero interest in being part of a body of which I cannot directly exert control or make change, and I just know that I'd never last 6 months at it. Spartacus I have never sat on any States Committee of any sort. The closest I have got to that was sitting on a couple of informal working groups about 10 years ago.
