They work for you

Depending on the votes of a couple of independent MPs, our fair city (and the rest of the country) may soon be covered with election signs. For most people, these head-shots and party affiliation often are the only things that they know about their local MP. Most of us can’t even remember their names and we assume that they spend the majority of their time trying to look attentive while the PM and ministers do most of the talking in Paliament.

This is why I am so impressed with this page, called TheyWorkForYou, that allows British voters to see everything that their local MP has said and done since the last election. This include a lot of written questions that would never make it in the news media. This group of volunteer programmers has done a beautiful job of organizing all of this publicly available information.
