Yearly elec­tion could solve our prob­lems

The Observer - - YOUR SAY -

WITH an­other elec­tion com­ing our way this year we are again be­ing promised the world.

Ei­ther side is go­ing to do this or that to make our mis­er­able lives just a lit­tle bit hap­pier. When one lot prom­ises some­thing, the other ups the ante and wants to give us more.

This has hap­pened since I first started vot­ing and with a cou­ple of no­table ex­cep­tions noth­ing earth-shat­ter­ing has ever hap­pened.

The pos­si­ble so­lu­tion would be to have an elec­tion ev­ery year. The costs in­volved will be in­signif­i­cant as we would al­ways be in sur­plus and ev­ery­one would be fully em­ployed.

The pol­lies would be on ten­ter­hooks not know­ing if they will get their job back the fol­low­ing year. JIM CARTER, El­liott Heads
