Why is it that as soon as it’s election time, suddenly there appears to be all kinds of money available for any number of projects or new initiative­s?

In the run-up to the election, we heard on an almost daily basis about funding for a variety of projects. My question to any politician would be: “If this project is worthwhile and deserves funding now, why did it have to wait until the end of your mandate to be acted upon?”

Unfortunat­ely, this seems to be standard practice for all parties in power!

As citizens, we are supposed to be enticed by the generosity of a governing party which is doing so much for us — remember, it is our money they are spending or promising to spend.

Like mushrooms, they like to keep us in the dark and feed us crap!
