IN response to Larry Wilson’s letter last week about voting.
It is increasingly difficult for me to get any enthusiasm for going to the polling station when, particularly nationally, we have reached a stage when we know that whichever party wins, they won’t implement the vast majority of the promises they make.
Instead, they will embark on an agenda nothing like what bought your vote and, yet again, you will feel cheated and annoyed.
Since 1997, Labour failed to act on many manifesto pledges.
The Conservatives, who had spotted our anger at this, actually promised an end to the breaking of promises, when in government – only to prove no better than Labour as promise after promise fell by the wayside. Sadly, we will reach the next election with no expectation that they will do what they say they will, if they get elected.
