I am getting really sick of all the negative campaigning that we’re being served up with in anticipation of the coming election.
What I would like is to be reminded of what each of the parties stand for, not the transient policies that will be discarded almost as soon as the result is announced.
It is the principles that inspire the polices and plans; those convictions which may allow us to predict the potential actions of politicians and ultimately to judge how successful they have been in office.
The reluctance of the contenders to articulate their philosophy is becoming increasing clear.
It would be very helpful if the Herald could persuade each of the candidates to explain why we should place our trust in them, rather than simply denigrating their opponents.
