Promise is a strong word. The vasy majority of politics is subtlety of languange. Even today I had a leaflet from Labour through the door about the estate been taken in charge and all the work and meetings to achieve it. I might of believed it if it wasn't for the fact that the local RA had for 4+years been working on this and we had held several meetings with the local coco and builders representative toachieve this and pushed it using local press. The fact it is nearly resovled and now major parties who have not has the slightest interest now post letters saying in their name (without directly saying it was them mind you) saying it is about done is shameful.
Modern society is continued only through politicians promising that wealth will be 'ours' if we vote for them.
