    It should be pretty clear to anyone remotely paying attention that manifesto commitments aren't enforceable in court.
    The point is that they should be, and as I said English law is primarily based on precedent so it would only take one ruling to turn around the trend of politicians lying through their teeth to win votes. To make manifestos and political promises a part of contract law would hold politicians accountable for what they say and what they do.
