Being cynical about politics has become a national sport - but is it with good cause? The media regularly captures public anger at politicians who are 'only out for themselves' and a political process where nothing ever changes. So, for those who believe politics can make a real difference to people's lives - what can be done? With electoral participation and party membership in long term decline, Hardeep Singh Kohli wonders if we've reached the end of the road with the political classes.
