Travis frontman Fran Healy has launched a scathing tirade against politicians, insisting they're forced into the career because they have no other talent. The Scottish rocker maintains lawmakers are inspired by fame rather than a real passion for making the world a better place. He says, "Politics is guys who couldn't be in pop bands and trying to be famous for something. "They couldn't play football, they couldn't box and couldn't write songs, so what were they going to do? They thought: 'I'll get a suit and talk b**locks. I don't even have to write my speeches, I'll get someone else to write them for me.'"
