I shall do such things!

But I’m not going to tell you what they are:

The former field marshal likely to win this week’s presidential election in Egypt has defended his refusal to publish a full manifesto by suggesting parts might be a state secret.

But, y’know, vote for me anyway.

Taking Burke just a little further than it might be right to take him perhaps. I am your representative, not your delegate, you are selecting the person to represent your interests….and given that times change it’s difficult to know exactly what the correct plan is. That might work as an MP, not sure it does when running for President.
