I would have thought that would have come down in the wake of the expenses scandal. I suppose that the operative word is 'earn'.

Gripping stuff. I'll screenshot this and mount it on my wall. Truly amazing revelations. Much like your usual stuff.

Keep this up. I could do with welcoming your bored readers through my door.

So what you are saying from your stats is that people who are interested in politics are mostly.

White, middle aged males. Kinda f*cks up the need for quotas, 50% female and party short lists chosen from "uninterested" groups in society really

So to summarise, in the last year your readers have aged, but haven't had a sex change.

Well I find it interesting Iain

And as a white middle aged male I feel I fit right in :)

Where do the 47% live whose locations are not mentioned? I live in the South West as defined in your questionnaire.
The feedback is appreciated by this reader despite the cynicism of some who should lighten up. It takes all sorts..
