Completely agree. We vote for the more middle of the road parties because we have more middle of the road people in this country in terms of prosperity and aspirations.
The public sector won't vote for radical policies, they have too much to lose, ditto for any career professions like you list, same again for anyone in good jobs in FDI companies. Farmers are also traditionally moderate.
For all the angst and whining about change, our politicians are a closer reflection of us than we're comfortable admitting publicly.
