Voters Shot - MP Questioned Wednesday 25 April 2001 PDF Print Jonathon Sayeed MP and other party representatives face tough questioning on 26th April. GeneralElectionSite.co.uk, the organisers, thank Wooton Upper School for hosting an all-party "Question Time" event with all local prospective candidates. Voter 'shooting' follows the debate as contenders compete in the 'Electioneering' computer game. "Typically before an election only a few key policy areas are highlighted in the media. The recent formation of GeneralElectionSite.co.uk and it's first key event help level the playing field: voters are presented with a fairer basis for comparison. We are creating forms of all-party debate that the media has sought from party leaders." claim Yasmin Gleeson and Liam Higgins, site founders. "Any scheme that helps modernise the democratic process, making it more open, user friendly and giving greater access to representatives is fantastic. This particular project is a marvellous example of the internet being used to create interest and sparking political debate with Britain’s young people.” Margaret Moran, MP for Luton South "It is important that young voters feel that their voices can be heard. That's the only way we can encourage active, democratic citizenship. The involvement of our students in the creation of this website has not only enhanced their A level studies but also allowed them to play a part in the development of a way in which other students can engage in a dialogue with those who wish to represent them." Tony Withell, Headmaster, Wootton Upper School. All parties expressed great interest in GeneralElectionSite.co.uk and this event. We expect strong support by local schools, constituency members and various media. A broad range of local and national issues will be covered. With activity occurring this week please contact Yasmin ASAP to get learn more above the event and future plans for GeneralElectionSite.co.uk.
