Mandates

When will the Parties, both political parties, stop the false bleating “we have a mandate for this measure”?
I would suggest that most people vote for a Party not for the issues (i.e. mandates) put up by the Party…and until the Parties list their intentions and we can tick what we agree with – in other words a referendum of the issues – then this talk of mandates is all so much hogwash.
So give us small referendums at the general elections and then we can really see what we want from the Parties – not a broad spectrum of ideas.
