My impression is that many US lawmakers are themselves lawyers. I don't know of other countries like this.
You call yourself SecretEuroPatentAgentMan
yet don't realise that the largest profession of UK Members of Parliament by far is the law? Bad sign. Perhaps the 'Euro' in your name indicates the eurozone only, or you don't pay attention to politics?
(That's not the most disturbing concentration in Parliament though. The most disturbing concentration is the number of members of the front benches who are ex-special advisors, closely followed by the number who have taken Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Oxford. The French grandes ecoles have nothing on this for insularity. That's not to damn PPE at Oxford -- not all PPEers become politicians, my cousin took it but became a Google lawyer instead -- but it is a sign of a dangerous lack of wider experience among the UK political class.)
