With all the political wrangling going on over the last few weeks it can be hard to filter out the message that is being delivered. Are we really a nation so shallow that judges our politicians on their ability to perform in front of an audience In the USA too this seems to be the main priority – how well did they come across in their stand off debates, who was the most confident and who was the most cautious and hesitant? Wow! they delivered their speech without notes! Surely in the current economic times it would be wise to be cautious, to refer to carefully prepared notes in order to demonstrate a genuine concern for the people?
If we compared out politicians to our bankers not a very good comparison I know, but our bankers are people who have been under great scrutiny recently, would we really be judging them on the same criteria? I think I would prefer a cautious banker to a cocky one.
As a customer and tax payer I would want to know what are you going to do for me and my family and the local community in which I live?
This week it is the turn of the Conservatives to sell their wares. Please please please don’t waste this valuable opportunity to slag off other parties or crow about your wonderful hindsight. Anyone of us can do that, we want to know what are you going to do for us in order to make our world a better place to live in?
