Their basis in law makes them as permanent as the statute book as well as fundamentally different from the transitory pledge of a politician during an election campaign. A law remains in effect until it is repealed, and repeal happens relatively rarely.

In turn, this creates popular expectations that the programme will work, that is, deliver the benefits to which people are entitled.
