Between now and the general election, we at iPM are offering a new service to our listeners imaginatively titled Election Questions.
The first question we tried to answer was from Jean Buckton
"I am totally blind and in a wheelchair due to osteoarthritis of the spine, I'm 42. My daughter (14) was born with cerebral palsy.
My husband had to give up work 14 years ago to care for us both full time. We rely solely on benefits such as Disability Living Allowance and Income Support.
My question is: which parties will help carers and the long-term disabled the most?"
That's a judgement only you can make Jean, but we can help with information about what the parties say. And what better guide than the BBC's Disability Affairs Specialist Peter White. Listen to his advice
It started with an email from listener Andrew Skilton:
"I was admissions tutor in a Theology and Religious Studies department at a British university between 2000-04. I was bemused by a surge in applications from applicants in Pakistan.
I ignored them because they were so bad, but a common theme was they all came from young men with a background in chemistry, physics or engineering who now wanted to write about the glory of god.
Overseas students are a major income stream for British universities. No-one has made the connection with the cut to university funding just announced by the government. How will this affect British security, as universities, which are businesses, are starved of cash?"
The talk of manifestos, pledges, gaffes and u-turns has started. As an election year begins, iPM is offering a new service to help you through it.
Is there a question you'd like to ask or something you'd like explained? Send it to us and we'll see if we can find an answer for you.
It may be about transport, schools, hospitals, childcare, taxes, Europe, MP expenses, whatever, we don't want to be prescriptive, but do keep it succinct.
We'll try and invite the relevant politician or a panel of politicians on to answer it, or perhaps one of our correspondents could explain whatever it is you'd like explained - we can't promise we'll be able to get hold of them, but we'll do our best.
How do I send it

Huge congratulations to our winner Delma Hughes who was nominated by Janet Rich, she wrote:
"Delma is a fifty-year-old mum of two who was brought up in care in Wales in the seventies. Like for many children in care at that time, life was often harsh and there was no rights for children to know who they were or what their family circumstances were.
Delma was one of seven siblings but knew nothing about them until later in her life when she tracked all of them down....Delma has campaigned to end the way that sibling groups are split up in care and often never have any further contact with each other.
She has created the charity Siblings Together and has run summer sibling camps to enable a small number of children, separated across the country, to have high quality and fun time together."
Listen to Delma talking on the programme
So, um, Delma was out when we called....but hopefully she'll want to talk to us in the new year, if Eddie's message hasn't put her off.
