A Dutch expression [omhoogvallen wegens gebrek aan gewicht] would translate more or less like: falling upwards because of lack of weight.

It's also known as "Peter Principle": The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence."

I like that a lot.

I remember an interview with the much maligned England football manager Graham Taylor, he basically said that managing the national team was the culmination of a career that had been on a permanently upward trajectory, and when he then experienced failure at the top level it was something that he had no experience of - consequently he was totally unequipped to deal with it.

No one who is voted out should ever be elevated. The people have spoken, and someone should listen to them.

Those who resign, take the Chiltern Hundreds, or do not stand / retire, are a very different proposition.
