    Clegg, Cameron, Milliband et al? Young men with no life skills, no experience, fresh out of Uni?

    Think about who is doing well now. Farage, Corbyn, and across the pond - Trump.

    All 'shoot from the hip', say it and be damned, Straight-talking politicians.

    Maybe all of the people can't be fooled all of the time after all.

    Do you prefer a straight answer to a straight question?

    I strongly believe that politicians, like teachers, should have had some experience of life outside before entering their intended professions.

    I would prefer them all to always tell the truth.

    I think that would suffice.
     
  5. I would love it if politicians just said it how it is but as I have said before, I think the media wouldn't allow it. As soon as a politician admits to a cock-up, it becomes the main item on the news, that's why they have to wriggle out of the awkward questions. A bit like Cameron using the word 'Swarm', just a word but the media has a field day until he is forced to apologise. Most MPs are tw*ts but the press are evil b*stards.

    How about the fresh out of Uni new Politian for the SNP, as I recall her maiden speech went so called Viral on Social Networks Mhari

    Now this is a person that should be listened to, even in England.

    The truth is out there somewhere? where and when to find it is another matter?
