Jobs without Experience

A little snippet from today's report into banking governance:-

There was concern that too many people working at board level within banks did not have any formal training as bankers.
The former head of Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS), Andy Hornby, came from a retail background, having previously headed up supermarket chain Asda.

Yet the government seems to think that it's just fine to have a former economic adviser to the government (ha!) as a the education secretary, a former Jaguar union rep looking after our defences and a wonk with no experience in hospitals running our hospitals.
