THE BIG LIE
Politicians are bound to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative to the Nth degree. Thus the electorate are so very bored by the banal questions and the platitudinous answers.
Thank you David Cameron for not allowing the British public an actual debate that may well have accentuated the actual truth and eliminated the actual bullshit.
The final BBC Question Time broadcast had an audience apparently fired up to challenge all three leaders, with unparliamentary language. Each leader in turn was accused of lying.
Cameron was challenged on the issue of broken promises, so he brought up the Labour legacy, yawn..
Ed Milliband was challenged on the legacy issue of whether or not Labour overspent on schools and hospitals. His refusal to accept the premise of the question made the Tory audience member catatonic with rage and anger.
For the record the UK spend less on health per capita than all western economies except Ireland, and Labour was actually guilty of not spending enough on the NHS.
Perversely Cameron would like to convince the electorate that his coalition spending on the NHS has improved the NHS when of course the reorganisation of the NHS and the brutal cut in the welfare budget has in fact increased the burden on the NHS, and made the NHS worse.
The idea that you can spend less and get more is the recurring awful lie of every Tory election campaign that I have witnessed.
This is the lie that attempts to justify all the other lies.
The big lie.
