Why are our politicians so contemptuous of us, the electorate?

It seems that saying sorry and being accountability for the actions of your office, department or Government is differcult for our elected officials.

In the UK, we have a Prime Minister who claims not to have been aware of a smear campaign being planned by one of his most trusted advisors inside No 10, a minister of State who claims expenses for XXX films, an ex-Prime Minister who took the UK into a war based on little or no real evidence.

Around the world, politicians are quite prepared to lie openly about what they will do once elected, just to ensure that we will vote for them and get them into office.

We even know that this is what the politicians are doing, yet we still go out, cast a vote and elect them.

Why is it so differcult for a politician to answer a straight questions with a straight answer, like yes or no.
