Our politicians:- Some stand for good reasons, some for a career and all of them are taken over by the cult that is power. They forget why they joined, it becomes all about winning power, gaining power and remaining in power.
Elections are like an auction, and the auctioneers are the politicians, they sell in quantity not quality. The aim is to flood the electors with a mediocre a mish mash of policies that are designed to create a lot of confusion so the voters are frightened of change.
This suits both sides of politics.
That's why the policies on offer are short on innovation, we need a party with enough guts to break with this "conservative,"attittide and who will present us with new ideas.
