Lying Politicians - It Doesn't Get Worse Than This..................from Dan T

Politicians telling lies to win an election is a recent phenomenon. In a more innocent era telling the truth was a virtue drummed into children by a generation of God fearing parents. Telling lies, even the tiniest little fib, was frowned upon attracting immediate punishment along with threats of more blood curdling punishments in the hereafter.

Sadly these are not so virtuous times and we are worse off for it. Lying has been normalised by a  political class who consider it to be a legitimate tool to use in the pursuit of power.

No one is surprised when a politician is caught lying, instead we expect it of them. So bad as it become we assume they are lying every time they open their mouths to speak.

We also assume the heartfelt promises made during an election campaign will be broken the moment the last votes are counted and the gravy train pulls out of the station.

There is an easy and appropriate cure for their lies. ESPECIALLY when both "Law Enforcement" and the "Legal" system refuse to hold them accountable for their crimes.
