The BBC reports on a new website that aims to engage young people with politics, or at least with politicians (although I think it’s been online for a while) – Where Is My Public Servant? or WIMPS – An..erm.. unfortunate acronym.. but there you go.
Some teething troubles are apparent – the email system for contacting representatives seems clumsy and there are no links to individual politician’s websites – even where they do exist.
More worrying is the events list
Upcoming events listed include –
Judas Priest & Special Guests The Scorpions?!
Erm.. which young people is the site aimed at again?
