My 'Mandate Party' No more sailing close to the margins of the law, and no more poor politician leaving politics exceedingly wealthy within a few years by using expense claims to subsidise capital investment...

They all[both] get voted in on one policy, and then claim that this gives them a mandate to cover their other previously hidden, noxious agenda. My question is: "With the advent of the internet giving most voters a potential voice, is it now the time to create a new party; 'The Mandate Party' where all main decisions are based on the will of the people?" Government by poll, by majority, by popular vote etc etc. Independant jurors could monitor and prevent skewing of questions, themselves randomly elected by a kind of Jury Service technique.Why is there a restriction in the number of entries for the poll, and why not have more than one question polled[if they're good enough]... Hmm a bit like my 'Mandate Party' I suppose... ;o) Thu 30 Apr 2009 22:12:48 GMT+1 Fellbog http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/04/the_ipm_opinion_poll_competiti.shtml?page=84#comment21 Are you happy being called a SUBJECT?(of the Queen) Sun 26 Apr 2009 11:47:25 GMT+1 rob2smile http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/04/the_ipm_opinion_poll_competiti.shtml?page=80#comment20 Listeners QuestionsAssuming David Cameron is capable of leading an effective opposition when will he start to prevent Britain becoming a second rate democracy or a Police state.

Yet neither the central or local government pay other than lip service to bi and multingualism - indeed, they look upon languages other than English (specially non-European) as disruptive and contrary to 'national identity'. So my question for the Poll is:What is your mother tongue and does using it make you feel:a. less Britishb. more Britishc. equally British and other identity Thu 16 Apr 2009 18:53:35 GMT+1 U13879388 http://wwwsearch.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/04/the_ipm_opinion_poll_competiti.shtml?page=72#comment18 How about questions the other way round - the general public asking the Edgie Mare ensemble what they thin they're playing at?How about:What do the Moderators do with posts that the PM-iPM in-crowd doesn't like but otherwise are OK?

A lassie asks "would you like to sleep with me for a hundred pounds?"The gentleman considers for a moment, and replies "Well, I'm not really tired, but I could use the money!"

The live trailing seemed to go on and on tonight!I mean it's only a question for an opinion poll - not as if the prize is a carribean cruise for two.

At the end of the programme they read out an email from a listener who said "I would pay not to have sex" - which got me thinking that in this sexualised world where there is the (possibly erroneous) assumption that everyone is up for it all of the time, there may be a proportion of the population, a silent majority even, who think otherwise and it would be interesting to ask this question in a poll.
