Promising the impossible

There is one rule for politicians all over the world: Don’t say in power what you say in opposition; if you do, you only have to carry out what the other fellows have found impossible.

John Galsworthy, d. 1933. English novelist and playwright. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932.

Whether the “other fellows” are in another party, or within your own :)
