Northern Irish PQs wanted…

Just had an interesting meeting with Owen Patterson, David Liddington’s replacement as Conservative Shadow Secretary of State. He’s open to suggestions for posting Parliamentary Questions in the House of Commons. It struck me that this could be an opportunity to open it out further to Slugger readers, as an experimental form of Crowd Sourcing. I have no idea how it well it will work, but it seems like a good way to get important (rather than trivial) questions answered in the public domain. So if you have burning questions that you feel need a tangible answer, post it below, or {encode=”mick.fealty@gmail.com” title=”email me”} directly. Let your passions dictate your questions (although may be best not to get too passionate in the way you phrase them).
