Not so in England, not only must you wait a full term of office (up to 5 years) they are protected with Libel laws of there own making, so unless you have a great deal of money and are willing to chance it in court the lies continue.
Politics in England is sick, very sick, and needs a change from the old boys/girls club to a non party system where liars are penalised and thrown out of office.
But England does not suffer the extremes of weather that other parts of the world does, It does suffer rapid changes and it is why visitors will find that the English are preoccupied with the weather, it is often brought into conversation, and perplexes many people from other countries.

 3am Politics: ENGLAND'S MISSING CRITIC
Paulin thought Hazlitt maybe saw the British political system as being really a republic with a monarchy dangling off it, or maybe it was just wishful thinking on behalf of a dissenter who had Napoleon the destroyer of European monarchs as his hero.
The engaged political gusto of these speeches recalls the history of such acts where, at its best, in the rapid whirl of events, we get lifted up from the depths of woe to the highest contemplations on human life.
The ability of Hazlittian dissent to bring together philosophy, history, drama, politics, the visual arts and literary criticism offers a suggestive alternative to po-mo. The roots are Unitarianism and are perhaps as interesting a place for plain speaking revolutionary left wingers to regroup as any other.

 Italian Pastoral Opera and Pastoral Politics in England, 1705-1712
Moreover, as the owners were considered metaphorical “shepherds” within their landscaped pastoral environments, the portrayal of them as shepherds through literature, sketches, and paintings was a blatant promotion of their right to exploit the land and rule over those of lesser status, in imitation of foreign despotism.
Since pastoral in England was equated with the English environment, the pastoral genre symbolically represented an outward manifestation of political power, where the cultural views imbued in the poetry reflected the patron as being either a friend of despotism, or a friend to civil liberty.
Moreover, as pastoral in England was directly associated with country estates, to associate Italian pastoral opera with the seats of British political and financial power was thus perceived to be a threat of the fashionable elite imposing despotism and papacy over the civil liberties of those of lesser status.

 Plagiarism, politics and England's setting sun by Seth Rogovoy
The wave of political and electoral reform, writes King, is moving in entirely the wrong direction.
What we need to fix our political system, suggests King, are measures to strengthen the ability of our elected officials to focus on their work and to reduce the pressure on them to run permanent campaigns.
Perhaps because he is a Canadian living in Great Britain, King stops short of recommending a wholesale shift toward the parliamentary system that most of the world's democratic nations seem to favor, for fear of having his suggestions be dismissed out of hand as the ravings of a mad Brit.

 Wesley J. Smith on Cloning & New England Journal of Medicine on NRO
With this editorial pronouncement, the New England Journal of Medicine effectively ceased to be an objective scientific/medical journal — at least on the issue of human cloning and embryonic stem-cell research.
In becoming so blatantly political, it has undercut its crucial role as a dispassionate and credible arbiter of reliable medical information.
In doing so, they have undermined their own reputation for probity, credibility, and scientific objectivity — the very qualities the editors have tried to appeal to as they strive to defeat what they claim is an ignorant drive to outlaw SCNT human cloning.

Politics Without Democracy provides an entertaining and highly original view of how Britain made a peaceful transition to representative democracy - a change characterized in other countries by convulsive and bloody civil strife.
Professor Bentley takes the reader into the minds of the politicians of the day, men such as Wellington, Peel, Disraeli, Salisbury and Asquith, as they and their colleagues did their best to control, manipulate (and often retard) the onset of "democracy".
Combining a deep personal knowledge of political history with the latest research he presents a highly original account of how Britain was transformed from a society governed by the landed gentry to one responsive to the pressures of the newly-industrialized masses.
