Subject: RE: BS: UK General Election
Another broken promise. Are we surprised? Remember David Cameron promised that even if he lost the referendum he would stay on and carry out its verdict? Everyone know what a Liberal pledge is worth. (Remember, voting for tuition fees to go sky high wasn't just a manifesto pledge, only operative if they won a majority, it was an individual solemn promise by Liberal candidates to vote against any such measure.)

Just about the only person in front bench politics whose word is actually worth anything is Jeremy Corbyn, and he gets crucified and ridiculed for it, because that's not how we play politics in this country. Who knows, there might be more people out there than you'd think who are fed up enough with liars they might actually choose to vote for the only honest man in the game?
