WANTED: A politician to appear on television to simply answer a straightforward question!

Every morning I eat my breakfast while watching BBC Breakfast News.

And every morning around 7-10 am a politician is quizzed about the topic of the day.

And every morning the politician ignores the presenter’s question and sets off on a rehearsed diatribe of party political claptrap in a concerted attempt to avoid giving a direct answer.

Do these people not understand plain English?

Please, oh please politicians, just answer the bleeding question!
