The Guardian on authentic politicians …

The Guardian had an interesting feature today on authenticity in politics written by David Shariatmadari which examines why the media profiles of politicians like Johnson, Sturgeon, Trump and Corbyn seem to have connected with the public. 

The word he picks out is authenticity and he pulls out elements of the definition in straight talking and consistent it also reveals however good a foundation it is it is not enough politically to be seen as an ‘effective’ leader. 

Good read.
