Elected representatives

6. Members of Parliament are elected to represent local people’s interests in the House of Commons. How can the internet and social media help with this?

Oh dear, where is the nearest local forum? Are you sure you will recognize your leader lawbringer without three wise men? And representing should be baker. And teacher. And nurse, bricklayer, farmer, doctor....... Anyway, what's a point of representing in digital polis?

7. Does social media enhance the local link for MPs, or undermine it by involving them in more national and international discussions?

They need a lot of improvement due to the fatal impact of incorrect or subjective report. The art of reporting. Media codex, digital order.

8. Use of interactive technology is increasing. Is this likely to increase pressure for more direct democracy, such as crowd-sourcing, referendums and citizens’ initiatives?

Sure, who is affraid of referendum?

9. What will democracy look like in 15 – 20 years?

It depends on all of us, but especially on you. It can slip into the radical totality very easly. And I hope you keep searching for society scientists and there is no wasted supergenius.

Information about politics

10. Most people still get most of their news from television, although this seems to be changing in favour of online information. Traditional news organisations are also changing. What impact will this have on elections and democracy in general?

Who am I supposed to elect? Manager?

11. How can online provision of information about elections be improved, including details of where to vote, how to vote and the results?

I thought we are aiming to 5+ votes per person per day....

Political campaigning

12. Can we expect continuous election campaigning through digital channels – what would citizens feel about that and would it undermine or strengthen representative democracy?

Citizens are loosing patience or falling into the apathy. I call it political frustration. Check turnouts.....
