We must be told what politicians stand for
Exactly one year from this weekend, we should know the make-up of the next government. That is, of course, providing that the current one runs its full term, although there is no apparent reason - apart from political opportunism after a giveaway budget - why it shouldn't.
While it is popular to say that a week is a long time in politics, in real terms a year is quite a short time, given that the Coalition is relatively stable and politicians will disappear to various boltholes over the summer.
It is therefore time to turn our thoughts to what each political party, or even grouping, has to offer.
