There is the definition of politicians, elected or otherwise, in a nutshell.

Gob off to all and sundry,  making promises the people probably want to hear or believe in but deliver very little in reality. The colour of the rosette may vary but the crap remains the same.

Yes but the ones who are in office we can hold to account. I sent an email to my local Labour MP last week. If Aaron Bell was my MP I'd be regularly holding him to account for his lies.

That is a tired cliche and a generalisation that isn't true.

And only the stupid think otherwise. 

I think politicians should stand by their promises. Does that make me stupid?

I thought that brexiteers don't resort to calling people stupid 🤔

You have every right to think politicians stand by their promises but as said you’d be stupid to think they will and that stands for whatever fence you stand on.

Here is another downside of brexit. The airport queues. Can anyone name any tangible upsides? I'm still waiting for any. 

I do remember the former brexit minister saying there would only be upsides and no downsides....

One example............. the NHS. 

Every party since it's underfunded creation has promised to protect/improve/save/etc the NHS. 

Ìts still underfunded, understaffed on the floor, under threat, etc. 

Political parties offer the carrot,  reality beats you with the stick.
