They Want To Be Elected
After so much huffing and puffing around this election campaign already it is good to have easy access to the manifestos and to actually engage with policies, such as they are [and leaving aside whether they actually intend to stick to them]. In They Want To Be Elected each point in each of the big three’s manifestos has a comment and trackback. Pretty simple. In fact so darn simple that this is what the political parties themselves should have done – produced a document to engage with and debate. But no, Labour despite their rhetoric about openness give you a PDF or a Flash file which is about as closed down as you can get [Flash could be a metaphor for modern political governance couldn’t it – all style over substance?].
