More movement on the UK election front

More innovations occurring over the water for the UK Elections with allowing you to comment on the various parties manifestos.
Tracking the voting behaviors of the back benches to see how they voted on the issues so you can find out if your local representative voted Yea or Nay on your issue/s.
Stopping the dog whistling mastermind. Refugee and immigration groups are calling for Lynton Crosby to be banned from New Zealand. Mr Crosby is credited with developing the 'dog whistling' technique in Australia (on the issue of immigration) and he's currently employed by the English Conservative party working on that issue and is partially credited with the simplification of their manifesto to five issues which are continuous being pushed. The various lobby groups in New Zealand are trying to prevent him from being employed in a similar role for the forthcoming New Zealand elections.

On the technical side we're got some movement regarding Ruby on Rails, with some interesting blogs on the subject. Including some nice AJAX work and a nice new approach to uploading.


  • FYI there is a new site based on TheyWantToBeElected for the Lambeth local elections called .

    It does the same with local manifestos as TheyWantToBeElected did with national ones, plus people can record their priorities for their ward and find out about candidates.
