It is true, politicians break promises. We all know this and should probably have worked it out a long time ago. But before starting a student campaign to ruin the Lib Dems, surely it is worth taking a step back and looking at the promises they did deliver on?
I just want to feel like me again. I just want to feel part of the real world. I want the old Krista back, even though I am no longer sure who she even is anymore.
