    Can't give too much away , say I graduated with PPE 1st from Ox , opposed the Conservatives and all capitalist economic activity all my life , should I ditch my principles for a job?

    It's super high paid , downing street based although requires some strict discipline and service...

    I wish.

    Having studied the regulations ( Bible-sized PDF) my role is fundamentally to ensure 'Prime Ministerial deliverance is conducted with adherence to constitution , whilst simultaneously circumventing cross-party concessions'

    In short , I'd be an overpaid servant to PM although i do understand i may be able to influence her views on a personal level , perhaps !?

    I find that hard to believe.

    I understand but don't forget you still have the right to talk to the PM and influence her views and decisions either personally or among your colleagues as this is freedom of speech. I personally don't support the conservatives but if I were at your position I would accept the job hoping that I could perhaps influence the PM. You never know where this job can take you

    Well regardless, you'll either sell out all your personal beliefs in the pursuit of power and personal security, or you won't.

    If you do the former then you're probably well suited for a career in politics. If not, then...you probably aren't.

    I'd say one reason to be offered this job was for my 'articulate defense for outspoken thought , alongside impressive demonstration of empirical political activism'
