    “How can public engagement in politics be sustained?”

    In the Scottish referendum everyone knew that if their preferred choice received the more votes, then that’s exactly what they’d get.

    That’s not normally how it works in elections! The voters vote for one thing, but often get another, even when their chosen candidate is successful.

    So the answer to the question would appear to be obvious.

    I’m already sick and tired of the 2015 election with MIliband and Ball’s talking about why they have to cap another bloody Miliband cap on child benefits.

    Cap on child allowances a pay rise of £1.50 to £8 an hour and the loss of all housing and council tax allowances as Miliband has said will pay for it’s self which in fact means that most people in work would find the pat rise would mean they find sod all in their pockets as it all gone on rents and council tax.

    God voting Cameron or Miliband or Clegg it’s a no brainer really.
