I found out Boris Johnson's degree included Latin although he speaks French and Italian. Going by past experience such academic types are fun to know but kind of "dotty" and isolated. Not knocking Boris's linguisic ability but you wonder why he isn't doing archeology or lectures. This is a global problem really - politicians aren't qualified with economics and business for background. Any old degree will do if it's from Oxford or Yale or Harvard. The academics I knew were great to chat to but hopeless with finances. They lived in a world of tutorials and libraries. In real life Boris would be interesting to chat to but probably removed from the real world. Yes, Boris would make a great lecturer but in politics he probably lacks the business ingredient.
