If this is representative, does it not mean people do not actually listen to what has been said? (See preceding post.)
For example, who pays for all the new 'policies' announced - the bloody country is broke! Why pass laws on, for instance the level of overseas aid, when no Parliament can bind it's successor?
Is this the same electorate that has existed in a Labour 'ordered' world, been relieved of their freedoms and money through 'stealth taxes', been subjected to sub-standard services, who have seen the entire concept of personal responsibility disappear into the clutches of the state?
