Beware politicians who sell snake oil...
AS all and sundry are now commenting on who’s better,fairer, more honest or ‘in touch,’ I think all parties should be applauded for the way they have remained silent on one aspect of Brexit which is, I believe a major stumbling block for our MPs – namely the gravy train.
You can, at the moment, be the worst MP in the house but still retain the chance of grabbing a million pound EU pension.
Why is any politician going to give up that chance freely? I don’t believe any politician, be it in the upper or lower house, can have an unbiased view on the matter as many are already employed by - and are affected by - the EU in some form. Indeed, I believe the obstacles thrown in the way of Brexit are nothing to do with the country’s future, they are instead politicians and lords looking at personal gains or losses.
“Cries of ‘oh no,they wouldn’t’ – politicians know the facts about their future EU-funded lifestyles, whereas no politician knows the future of Britons outside the EU and quite frankly don’t care.
The worst thing about elections is that the government always gets in. We then find their promises were ‘misunderstood’ by the ignorant electorate and were not promises but wishes. I’m a bit long in the tooth now to take notice of any politician selling snake oil.
I will instead vote the way I believe is best for future generations. Alan Smith, Chadderton
