Welcome to World Have Your Say..follow the debate here...


Arnaud who's a WHYS listener is Rwandan now living in Cameroon. He sent us an emails, asking: "Is peace and poverty under dictatorship better than bad democracy?". Arnaud says, for him, the answer is a resounding yes. But he wants to know if you agree with him. So, wherever you are in the world, let us know if you do. On today's progamme we spoke with people from Iraq, Russia, Poland, Zimababwe, Pakistan Congo and Morocco..to try and get some answers.. We are off air now, but you can listen to the programme again - just click on TODAY's programme...

And tell us what you think about the case of the missing 4 year-old Madeleine McCann who disappeared from her parent's holiday apartment in Portugal in May. If you're in Portugal, we'd like to know what you think of the way your police and judicial system have been portrayed AND do you think the British media has been too critical of the way in which the Portugese have dealt with this?

    Hi all!!That is a very interesting Question... and sad that, that is our choices...,I live I Canada, and although a great contry, people and the beautiful spaces, Yes peacefull, but bad domocracy, Infact I believe that it isn't really democracy at all, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, no matter what any of the peoples say eccept the rich and powerfull...big corporations. In that, the corporation, it is a world market, with no borders, the only object is power and control..., it is a sad world
