Should we ever believe our politicians?

Today, our Chancellor of the Exchequer revealed his Autumn Statement on the economy. Yet again the government has missed its declared targets on deficit reduction. We are still living well beyond our means.  The opposition was as bad. It seems you can promise what you want, then miss the targets. Moral - DON'T ever believe what our politicians say.

Supposedly we are "getting out of the red". Who is kidding? Sadly I see little chance of better economic news under a largely Labour government. It makes voting in the General Election next year even more important. I may end up voting for the team I detest least, rather than the party I most like.
