" Today the Prime Minister said to the media that what politicians say to the public, for public consumption, is not relevant.
And he is right.
The politicians can say one thing to us and do just the opposite. There is no consequence. We the people do not know how to care enough that we gain politicians' respect, their accountability.
Next election, I will care to remember this. I will care enough to vote for those politicians who think the public matters, that what they say to the public matters. In fact, I will vote to emphasize that 'what politicians say to the public is the ONLY thing that matters'. "
