Why do we elect them?
9:28am Friday 4th May 2012 in Letters
MODERN day politicians often make appalling decisions. Look at the way the country has deteriorated in the past 20 years.
They rise to the top if their face fits, keep their heads below the parapet and follow the party line.
Fine examples are Menzies Campbell, Yvette Cooper and David Cameron. They become power-struck, think they can “walk on water”; they are possibly stressed out and incapable of making decisions based on logic.
The very worst any country can do is overfill itself with people, but in spite of all the negative results, this is still carrying on. Blair, Brown or Cameron – not one of them does what the vast majority of people voted for them to do.
