Abstract

A commentator on LBC Radio last week has declared that whilst this is undoubtedly a ‘Brexit election’, it may also be regarded as a “lying election.” As he explained, there is an increasing sense that though politicians have a credibility problem at the best of times, the volume and profligacy of promises being bandied about by each of the main parties is leading voters to wonder who can be believed.
