4 Bizarre Reasons politician forget their Election campaign promises and How To Hold Them Accountable


Alot of us would agree that it would be our collective national interest that our elected political  office holders be put under the whip-hand of activist and judges, if they fail to implement election campaign promises? Especially when they pretend to forget it’s dishonest and very immoral and are no longer honourables, your highness, distinguished, or great.

The way normal people or the electorate forget differs depending on whether a memory is stored in their long term or short term memory.

In Short-Term Memory-STM: There are three ways in which you can forget information in the STM:

This occurs when you do not ‘rehearse’ information, ie you don’t contemplate it. The physical trace of such memory is thought to fade over time.

Displacement is quite literally a form of forgetting when new memories replace old ones. Everyone knows the potentially vast capacity of memory, particularly long-term memory, but research by Norman has shown that numbers can replace old ones being memorized (using the serial probe technique).

It’s sometimes difficult to remember information if you’ve been trying to memorise stuff that’s similar, eg words which sound similar (in 1966, psychologist Baddeley found that participants of his study found it easier to remember words which were more distinguished). Interference can either be proactive (this is when old memories interfere with new ones) or retroactive, when new information distorts old memories.

In Long-Term Memory- Long term is supposed to be limitless in its capacity and length in terms of time.

Still though, we can forget information through decay (as in short-term forgetting) and interference from other memories.

But How Do politician forget their Election Campaign promises?

politician forget their Election Promises Because of Poor Party Ideals:

Every individual has a set of beliefs of what is right or wrong, what makes them feel super inside specially when they

accomplish something noble. When a lady goes out of her way to do something good, they feel angelic.

Political parties have sets of ideologies when brought together makes them a political entity. It is this ideologies that

gives them that same feelings that Nelson Mandela had on assuming office as first democratically elected president of

South Africa after the collapse of apartheid. However, when  a party’s idiosyncrasy is distorted with so many personal interests, do you know what you get defection and loss of locus standing.

If I am leader of a party any person that defects to my party will be given the back sit. And a none party member joining our party who has never been members of other political party has my full respect and support.

Politician forget their campaign promises when they move from one party to the other. When Political party is getting it right they experience that feeling. Unfortunately many politicians will die and never have that feeling of worth, of accomplishments, no wonder they hide behind Special Assistants and Senior Special Assistants because they lack the courage to face the electorate. spineless. They allow their courageous aids to do their dirty linen. And when it’s time to take credit they are first in line.

2. Politicians forget their Campaign Promises When They Fail To Plan Before Election- Manifesto:

Its easiest for Politician to seem to forget Election Campaign Promises if the only thing they do is mobilize support, castigate other political parties, invest money in Campaign but make no winning strategy on how to be a success after they win the election.

The problem is not that they want to be seen as failures but because the party in question may have a will to perform but lack a concrete plan, emotional stability and focus that comes as  result of knowing what to do.

3. Politicians forget their Campaign Promises When they Run With Wrong Motives:

Interference theory proposes that the brain may not be able to recall certain details due to the existence of other  details. The two main types of interference are proactive interference and retroactive interference. Proactive interference occurs when a new memory is difficult to recall due to the existence of a similar older memory. Retroactive interference is when newer information makes it difficult to recall older information. The motive a  politician has while running for political position will come to bear.

Decay theory is one possible explanation for retrieval failure. This theory suggests that a memory trace is created with the making of each new memory, and as the memory trace fades with time, it eventually vanishes if the memory is not recalled.  Why do politicians even need to want to break promises? It’s pretty easy for them to make a set of promises they can’t possibly keep. (whether they realize this or not). Frequently it’s budgetary arithmetic they blame, mind you, this constraints don’t affects their bogus allowances.

4. Politician forget their Election Campaign Promises When they are traumatized:

Motivated forgetting theory suggests that an individual does not recall certain memories because they are traumatic. Suppression and repression are the two fundamental types of motivated forgetting. Suppression occurs when an individual consciously forgets, and repression refers to those times when an individual forgets on the unconscious level.

A politician hit with motivated forgetting can happen as a result of a stroked of sudden good fortunes, or blinded by hidden vendetta, or overwhelmed by sickening over ambition, so much that they tends to set aside so easily election promises in order to satisfy these desires.

How could the electorate fight back to reclaim broken confidence?

Lawful Agitation:

Like the Washington women demonstration against the government positions on things they don’t agree. The public is already familiar with this strategy to keep politicians on the straight and narrow. However, the public is too irrational to use this strategy for various reasons. Politicians break their promises because the public tolerates dishonesty. Yes, you can blame politicians for lying; but as a wise, old saying goes, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

And we allow politicians get away with broken promises. But another question is still open:Why do politicians want to make a promise that the know they will not keep in the first place?

To get elected;

First, as a politician you build a large coalition which requires making promises you won’t keep. Lets make them pay, VOTE THEM OUT. Else, you will come one day and they will make you belief they were born to be that upper class and you their sandals cleaner.

In Africa, politicians can easily break election promises with impunity and they feel pious about it. If they think it will cost less to break a promise than to fulfill it they will trash or discard it. So make them see how hugely their broken promises can affect them.

Here this,  a politician will not breaks promise, if they think they will pay heavily.

Adapt method of Mnemonic strategies, repetitive rehearsal, and emotional arousal to ensure that they remember. You should not let them rest until they fulfill promises made.

You see political promises each party makes in its manifesto are not legally enforceable. If you want to enforce them, you’ll have to use the ballot box – or run for political office yourself.

Today, The British Supreme Court ruled this morning that U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May must seek the permission of parliament to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to start the country’s exit from the European Union. The 11-judge court Brexit, however, that they devolved administrations in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland would not need to be consulted on the decision to trigger Brexit talks.

What is the point here, Gina Miller was successful in holding the government accountable and got a ruling on a challenge against the British government’s right to start divorce proceedings from the European Union, in central London .

    Parrot Bluetooth Headset Simplifies Speech Presention

    technology, which lets you pair the headset with two devices at once. For easier pairing, the B350-XT uses NFC technology,

    allowing you to pair with an NFC-enabled device simply by tapping them together. The headset transmits data using 128-bit

    encryption, keeping your phone calls private.
    The receiver side of the headset features volume buttons as well as a multifunction button to control power, pairing, and

    call answer/end and a Parrott Button. The Parrott Button is a multifunction button that can be set using the free BlueParrott

    MySay iOS/Android app to mute, dial a dedicated phone number, and more. The headband and flexible microphone can be adjusted

    for comfort and sound clarity, and the headset is lightweight at under three ounces. It also includes both an AC wall charger

    and a DC car charger, so you can stay connected at home and on the road.
    UPC: 607972034752
    Comfortable enough for all-day wear, the Blue Bird Bluetooth Professional-Grade Wireless Headset System is

    ideal for telecommuting. It works with any Bluetooth device like mobile phones and computers. With an over-

    the-head design, it offers promise/state as true and comfy fit even for long conversations.

    This over-the-head Bluetooth

    headset features a noise-canceling microphone, which reduces background noises. Different functions including

    answer/end, silent, volume, and pairing are placed in the headset itself for added convenience. This Blue

    Bird Bluetooth Professional-Grade Wireless Headset System offers clear and high-quality voice as it

    features a flexible “gooseneck” boom.

    With 66 ft. receiving range, this high-quality noise canceling

    microphone headset is a must have for busy parents, professionals on the go, and anyone for whom doing two or more things at


    is a must.

    Blue Bird Bluetooth Professional-Grade Wireless Headset System with Extended Talk Time:

    The Blue Bird Bluetooth headset with extended talk time is comfortable for all-day wear so it’s ideal

    for telecommuting 66′ receiving range from Blue Bird base.

    Blue Bird Bluetooth headset professional-grade works with any Bluetooth-enabled device including cell

    phones and computers

    Noise-canceling microphone reduces background noise

    1) It turns on/off/pairs with my phone in less than half the time of the B250 (~2 seconds instead of ~5)
    2) Sound quality is very good with deep rich tones that make it feel like you’re listening to music instead of a phone

    3) USB Micro charging port means that i don’t have to keep a separate charger around for this unit which is nice

    1) Foam microphone cover fell off very easily multiple times
    2) Earpiece cover also falls off all the time, multiple times
    3) The boom mic is between the ear piece and the main part of the unit instead of outside the unit like the B250. This makes

    it a hassle to flip up after calls and flip back down when a call comes in because it always hits my glasses or hat or

    whatever. You also have to fish it out with your fingers from between the headband and your head. The B250 model was a simple

    one hand, one motion push the answer button and flip the boom down to your mouth and talk. This is not possible with the B350
    4) The buttons are too close together and too “flat” so you can’t feel the difference between volume down, up and

    answer/cancel buttons without running your finger up/down the side a couple times to “see” where you are and know what button

    to press. The B250 had buttons that were much taller, different size and spaced apart far enough that it was very easy to

    feel which button you were on.
    5) The fancy British woman who replaced the high/low or low/high beeps seems like a good idea until you actually use it. The

    voice is always quiet – it does not get louder/softer with the volume settings (or if it does, it’s so much quieter than the

    phone call that it’s not noticeable). This is fine sitting in a quiet room, but when your in a car, you can barely hear (not

    to mention even understand) what she’s saying which makes it confusing. In the B250 the Low then High tones when powering on,

    single High tone when connected to the phone and High then Low tone when powering off were always able to be heard, took much

    less time than listening to the woman say “Your Headset is Connected” or “Power On”.

    I never made it far enough (just over 1 week) to test out the fancy new button that you can program to do various things or

    see how the battery life was. If it can’t do the basic phone functions of easily answering and making phone calls, the rest

    of the features don’t matter in my opinion.

    4.0 out of 5 starsBetter than the old model in almost all areas except one
    ByMichael C.on January 24, 2016
    Color: Black|Verified Purchase
    I owned the 250-XT prior to owning this headset and I must say that the talk time is a huge improvement. Also, I like the

    fact that the XT has the capability playing music through the headset. As far as the range, I’d say that 30 ft. of clear

    listening is what I’m getting a on a regular basis, but that all depends on whether there’s a clear line of sight between you

    and the phone. I’m a truck driver so when I go the the rear of a container which is 40′ with the additional 4′ or so added by

    the catwalk; it basically holds your call but the voices will be incoherent. If, however, you leave the phone on the dash

    with a direct line of sight to phone I’ve noticed much better range…easily 50ft. with clarity. Another improvement is the

    charger. The charger that came with the old 250-XT was a bit difficult to find in a store if the old one was damaged, but the

    350-XT has a regular mini adapter that you find on many cell phones and small electronic devices. I found myself without a

    charging cable for a few days, because I had to order a new one. There’s only one thing that I do not like about the 350-XT;

    that’s the noise canceling. I cancels out the noise from my truck, but it actually amplifies sounds from my radio and TV. If

    All around best headset EVER in terms of battery, noise suppression & clarity. Only negative: looking like a McDonald’s

    employee. I have literally tried every Bluetooth headset ever made and keep coming back to this one. I have converted people

    over to this headset because of the awesome battery life the extreme noise suppression in the amazing clarity of both hearing

    people and having people hear you. There’s no way around the look because it is required to get the function. No other

    headset can come close to this headset in any category except looks so if you are in your car or in your office or looks

    don’t matter do yourself a favor and at least try this one because even the price is lower than other options. If your calls fo said in good working order and after one call headset froze and wont respond to any

    power off and on, hear a buzzing noise while its frozen. Useless after one try. Changed my review heard its common and just

    Color: Black|Verified Purchase
    This headset is amazing! I used it without charging it for 2 days. The noise canceling is great. I was outside on a windy day

    and the person can hear me just fine. Its sometimes too loud I have to lower it down. After a few months of using it I have

    to say it’s worth the money. I suggest to wrap the microphone cover to keep it from falling off. As you can see in the

    picture that’s what I did. The microphone cover is important for the noise cancellation. You can even whisper while your

    talking to someone and not hear your own voice in the truck and they can hear you perfectly fine!!

    5.0 out of 5 starsGreat for a Convertible with the Top Down On the Highway
    ByRobon July 26, 2015
    Color: Black|Verified Purchase
    I’m not a trucker, but I have a long daily commute. I recently got a convertible and found out fast that the built in

    Bluetooth and standard “noise cancelling” headsets just don’t work when your driving with the top down. I finally decided to

    try the BlueParrot (after several tries with Jabra and others) and I must say this thing works like a charm. My wife had no

    idea I was driving 70 mph with the top down! Build quality is excellent. Fits fine on my head. Not sure what the negative

    reviews about the boom mic being on the inside are about. Seems like a great idea. Overall, I would highly recommend this

    product if you are looking for a true noise cancelling headset.

    3.0 out of 5 starsI have tried my very best to like this headset
    ByGrass Mavenon October 26, 2016
    Color: Black|Verified Purchase
    I’ve been using this headset for 1.5 months now after buying it to replace a 3-year-old B250-XT. I have tried my very best to

    like this headset; I even recommended it to a colleague after the first couple of days I had it, but I do not think it’s as

    good as the B250 line, and I now want to try to figure out how to return/exchange it for one of those. These are the reasons

    I want to exchange it:

    – Speaker Quality: The speaker quality on the B350 is not as good as the B250–both are better than any other headset I have

    tried, but the B350 requires a higher volume even in quiet environments (around 50% level for quiet places like my home

    office, and 100% for noisy environments) When the B350 is turned up to 80%+ (required for aiports, cars, etc.) the audio

    starts to have some distortion and high pitched sounds can be painful; also the ring tone from the phone is deafening when a

    new call comes in at this volume level. My B250 only required 10-20% volume in the home office, and ~50% volume in airports,

    etc, at airport volume levels the sound is much cleaner.

    Edit: the speaker on the B350 is also harder to hear unless positioned precisely, and if the volume is up above about 70%

    (frequently required for slightly noisy environments), I have some people complain of an echo because they can hear feedback

    from their own voice being picked up by the mic.

    – Bluetooth Connectivity: The B350 Bluetooth signal seems weak compared to the B250, and even other Bluetooth headsets.

    Something as simple as my phone being in the pocket on the far side of my body from the headset has sometimes caused

    The Parrot Bluetooth Headset B250-XT connects to your devices via Bluetooth.. It also features wideband audio and multipoint
    crackling and distortion that usually only happens with other headsets if you get too far from the phone (100+ feet, or

    around a couple of walls). These issues got better with a firmware update to 3.31, but did not completely resolve. Both

    headsets were tested with the same iPhone 6.

    – Comfort: I wear these headsets for 5-10 hours a day on many occasions, the B350 tends to cause my ear to become sore and

    the headset has a propensity to slip forward on my head. The optional foam covering the ear speakers is thin (I do not like

    the pleather earpad that comes on the 350 by default) and has already slipped off the earpiece once. It’s difficult to pop

    off the outer enclosure of the earpiece to re-seat the foam cover, and the foam has stretched slightly and does not fit

    snugly. The headband constantly extends out past where I want it to, and it’s difficult to adjust it back while it’s on my

    head, even with two hands, without making noise on my call. The B250 wasn’t perfect, but overall was much more comfortable

    and suffered from far fewer of these flaws.

    – Button design and appearance: The B350 does win in this category. I like the side button layout and the feel of the

    buttons. Unfortunately the positive feedback “click” from the volume up/down buttons is loud enough to come through as

    clicking on the phone line for the B350. I never had this issue reported by anyone when I used the B250

    – Noise cancelling: The B250 wins here. I haven’t inspected the mic in detail on the B350, but it does not appear to be a

    directional mic like the B250. The B250 would cancel everything but kids screaming and dogs barking (very high pitch sounds),

    and it would dampen these. The B350 also picks up additional sounds like water, or my coffee machine operating during calls.

    Misc.: The boom for the mic is shorter on the B350 and I find it more difficult to position the mic for calls. Also the

    initial Bluetooth connection uses a voice notification of “your headset is connected; battery high” which interrupts incoming

    audio for that entire message. The B250 had a simple “beep” for the connection transition.

    Overall: For me the B250-XT was the clear winner. I hope the B250-XTS kept everything the same and only changed to the

    micro-USB charging port rather than the proprietary charging interface.
