Join Nick Clegg online for The Great Debate

News from Nick Clegg of an exciting online event next Monday:

On Monday we can change the way we do politics. Every week I travel around the country to meet people in their local town halls and listen to their views. Anyone can come along and ask me (just about) anything and in return I get a pretty good picture of how people across the UK feel about politics and how they are being affected by the recession.

Next week I am going to do another of my public Q&A meetings, but this time it is going to be live and online so that you can ask me your questions from home, your work or wherever you happen to be online. There will be no script and no special invitations – just get in touch and ask a question on subjects that concern you.

The one thing that keeps coming up again and again is the state of our politics and how we can clean it up. Many people say they would like to see action taken against MPs who seriously abuse the system. But currently voters have no power to sack those MPs who have been found guilty of serious wrong-doing. I want to change this and make politicians more accountable and politics more transparent. I am keen to hear your ideas.

This has never been done before so, on Monday 13th July post your questions and let’s discuss how we can clean up politics and fix the British economy.

For full details, see the Reuters website.

At the same time, Lynne Featherstone MP (chair of the Lib Dem Technology Board) will be holding a discussion with grassroots activists at Lib Dem HQ, and feeding their questions back to Nick. I’ll be there throughout, covering the event for Lib Dem Voice.

Jo Swinson MP (who regularly offers the finest twitter coverage of Prime Minister’s Questions, and has campaigned for coverage of Parliament to be available on YouTube) will be taking part over at Reuters, discussing her use of social media in her work.

Join us online on Monday 13 July at 1pm!

    Nick is brilliant, he only need to make his answers longer, not to carry on other leaders comments but to make original responses. He also need to make a wider vision in his answers; to touch on several points and examples and not to concentrate on one point, though it might show his strength.
