Labour and Liberal Democrats: Promises made in Opposition are forgotten when in Government

The Labour Party has been banging about renationalisation of train services for decades. It has been the talk practically every single election including the election of 1997 that Labour won with a landslide majority. Unfortunately, as soon as they got into power for thirteen years, they forgot about and found all kind of justifications not to implement what they had promised in order to get elected.

The same Labour Party while in Opposition under both Margaret Thatcher and John Major, constantly asked for the renegotiation of the Common Agricultural Police and of all treaties that were damaging British farming and British fisheries. As soon as they got in power in 1997, the Labour Party completely forgot about it. As political party in power, the Labour Party created University Tuition Fees. Now, because there is an election, the Labour Party talks about abolishing University Tuition Fees and the Liberal Democrats that promised to abolish University Tuition Fees also forgot completely about its electoral promises as soon as they formed a coalition with the Conservative Party.

When it comes to policing, Labour Party representatives make promises about increasing the number of Police officers. The only problem they have is that they don't have a clue about how much it would cost to fund such increase in numbers of Police officers. They constantly talk about cutting down crime, crime that they themselves created by flooding the United Kingdom with foreign criminals.
