Our country deserves better

IT just goes to show how far removed from the realities of life and, therefore, the rest of us, our dysfunctional political establishment has become.
The farming minister Jim Paice was asked if he knew how much a pint of milk costs to consumers. He replied, no, because his wife buys most of it, but he had checked with her where it comes from.
Would that be cows?
Both David Cameron and George Osborne have also been criticised for not knowing the answer either, and in 2008 Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg said that a single person’s pension was about £30 a week, when in fact it was £90.70.
It is worrying that they obviously don’t have any idea of the high cost of living that affects the daily lives of most people and much of which has been caused through high taxation by these very people who are now in Government.
Our country deserves better.
