Christmas and Elections are coming

With just twenty four days left to Christmas and only 126 days to the next UK General Election politicians are promising the electorate presents provided, of course, they get elected. As time goes by they will vie with each oter in their promises, hoping, no doubt, that the electorate will forget that the promised presents are being bought with money that will be taken from the electorate, in that fine line between taxation and theft,which governments can decide.
