I'll vote for a party comes up with a bill which says they get sacked if they break their promises in the election run-up. Promises need to be measurable and within a certain time frame - if they don't achieve the promises - they've either lied or failed - both will mean the sack for them. I somehow don't see a bill like this happening in the near future.written 15th Apr 2005
piersh replies: If they break their promises don't vote for them next time round. There are consequences for unpopular politicians, they lose their jobs.written 15th Apr 2005
Paul replies: The threat of not getting elected again in 4 years time when they have a fresh bout of "who can be the biggest liar" just isn't good enough. How many jobs have you been in where you get a "chance" of losing your job after majorly lying - 4 years later?
All I'm asking for is for them to take responsibility for their actions (or inactions)!written 15th Apr 2005
