  • I don't know why I said Radcliff, I did of course mean Radford, of the Liberal Party
  • Not 'in' any more, but I'm from Stoneycroft (Councillor Radcliff is a family friend), went to the Blue Coat and liverpool uni. And funny thing, I left (and moved to the US) 12 years ago.
  • Much as I'm sure we all love free software, there are some for whom MS Word (to pick a common word processing example) is the most readily available and best understood. I'm sorry to say that I count myself in this category. It's also important to n…
  • The constant danger of this sort of liquid democracy is that it does require those delegating their vote (presumably because they don't have time and/or understanding to wield it themselves) to maintain regular awareness and understanding of what ma…

  • Yeah,we're trying, it's hard work though, as it's a heavy-lobbying country. Doesn't help that Americans as a whole are cowards (I mean that seriously, most legislation is fear based)
  • What was right with it is more the question. It doesn't actually do anything except cause strife, mainly because certain people tend to... dominate things and it's very hard to get rid of them. In the US, there's a thing called Gerrymandering, wher…
  • What, to you, is the 3 most important areas/topics you think PPUK should be working on? Secondly, what are the 3 most important areas/topics to you?
