One could argue that students of these subjects have all the financial incentive they need. Popular perception says that they go into gold-plated careers while those in humanities become starving artists, unhappy teachers or McDonald's employees. This view is, of course, wrong.
In fairness, it can't be easy trying to get people excited about politics in the UK, especially when you've got the likes of David Cameron and Nigel Farage ignoring you like you've just crawled out of Downton Abbey's servant's quarters to feed them dinner.
While the broadcasting establishment may think they are being clever calling out Cameron and becoming the story, they are really cooking up even more voter dissatisfaction. Inclusive government, not inclusive TV debates, is the key.
If just one of the main parties had someone who was a bit normal, able to galvanise, able to connect with the man on the street, able to rise above the other weak willed leaders all around them, they'd walk this election. It's just a shame that the only leader who fits that description is in charge of UKIP.
To be British is to be multicultural and accept inclusion within British society. Furthermore, stronger leadership is needed within communities to undermine extremism and promote change and integration into the wider London community.
Hopefully one day we will hit on the one thing which will cause our art to transcend mere folly and become a flighty dove of pure satire. One day I hope to be as great as Al Murray.
On Monday, the Green Party unveiled their new campaign poster in Westminster, boasting a rich, emerald green where the MP of Brighton Pavillion Caroline Lucas and party leader Natalie Bennett stand, both with beaming smiles and the tagline: What are you afraid of boys? - I like it...
Nigel Farage has been seeking to find the Tory baseline on Europe, but with Cameron completely fluid on policy and willing to veer further and further right, Farage has struggled to land a destructive blow in the past couple of months.
Cameron has concluded that the Greens are powerful and relevant enough to potentially split the left. I disagree with Mr. Cameron on almost everything, but on this we agree. The Greens are now a threatening political force. The sneaky rise of the Greens is over. The Greens have risen.
I hear you marched in your thousands against my religion. Last week, and last month. You marched against immigrants, foreigners, and anyone a shade darker. I will not draw comparisons to Nazi Germany. I will not call you bigots, I will not insult you, and I will not label you. But we do have a problem.
The Green Party have a duty to continue to provide for the nation a fresh, fair and radical alternative to the 'business as usual' establishment, just as media chiefs from the BBC, ITV, SKY et al have a duty to promote and encourage a wide, engaging and relevant debate involving those extended the right to vote and elect.
I'm certain that the only factor in the prime minister's mind when he made this announcement was the issue of fairness - not the tactical consideration that the Greens might take votes from the prime minister's rivals, or the fact that incumbents rarely do well in debates, or that he didn't do fantastically in them last time. I also believe that the whole notion of TV debates during one of the most significant elections in years should indeed hinge on the inclusion of a party commanding less than 10% of the vote in nationwide polling.
The Greens have steam coming out of their ears after Ofcom ruled they are not a 'major' party and therefore will not be included in the televised leader's debates in the run up to the general election.
Despite heavy criticism of Ukip and of their leader, Nigel Farage seems to be gaining in both momentum and popularity. So what is it that makes him appealing? To many he may seem repellent in his beliefs and his manner, but others are drawn to him. If you put politics to one side and simply analyse his communication style you can begin to understand why.
Whatever their reasons for supporting the party I cannot believe that every member is the screaming racists that some commentators would paint. I know people like them, I was one of them once, and painting them as 'swivel eyed loons' only pushes them into a corner.
As long as the public continues to accept the assurances of the rich that we have to suffer so that they don't have to, the bitterness created will continue to create divisions between ethnic and religious communities that should be working together to destroy zero hour contracts and ensure proper funding for the NHS.
