Well no you haven't. You haven't even addressed the question. Pretending there is no question by changing the subject is not answering the question, let alone defeating it. An example is my current Federal Government who proposed and completed their first budget a couple of nights ago and raised and created a plethora of taxes, in direct contradiction to all of their election promises that they would not do what they are now trying to do. When confronted about the clear discord between the election promises and what they are now trying to do, they deny there is a difference in what they promised and what they are now doing and instead complain about the previous Government (now in opposition).. They haven't addressed the questions in as much as they are pretending the questions and the issues brought up in the questions do not exist.
