Hmm...

There was a discussion on Radio 4's Today programme this morning about the curious fact that Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel and Frauke Petry, leader of the German 'right wing' 'populist' party AfD, all graduated in Chemistry. Perhaps (the general drift of the discussion seemed to be) this gave them a logical, analytical, scientific approach to problem-solving that improved their understanding of political questions...
 Not mentioned was recent research demonstrating that Engineering graduates - presumably with the same logical, analytical, scientific approach to problem-solving - are massively over-represented among, er, Islamic terrorists. Funny old world.
