Voters are turned off by this mad auction of phoney promises
I have been reading the many promises being made by politicians as we approach the forthcoming General Election. Taoiseach Enda Kenny promises massive tax cuts but does not give even one example of such cuts.
Tánaiste Joan Burton offers old-age pensioners an increase of €25 per week and Fianna Fáil, which does not want to be outdone in this mythical auction, is offering everyone a minimum of €188 per week.
None of this, in the present mess that we are in, can be believed. As voters, all we want is the truth, not promises.
