‘Tired of the same old politics? So are we’, wrote the politicians in a collaborative post. 

‘It’s time to shake things up, challenge the status quo, and restore faith in our democracy. We’re not afraid to do politics differently – with authenticity, humility and a genuine commitment to progress. We must pave a new path forward.’

‘We cannot let the faith in politics end once and for all. This is the way we have always viewed and did things – sometimes you’re looked at suspiciously by those who benefit from the status quo – but our country deserves better.’

What do you make of this?
