Slugger Awards: “Politics would be better if only politicians would….”

We’re never done telling politicians what they should not be doing. Here’s a chance to help define what we want them to do more of.

As many of you will already know, we are relying on you to help us develop the Slugger Awards categories this year. If it works, it will be a multi-layered process: including a Dragon’s Den type breakfast event later in the Autumn. But we need to get started with as many ideas as possible.

Today we continue on from looking at the media to politicians. Once again the ‘provocation’ is deliberately short, so as many people can give us their ideas as to what would make for a better politics in Northern Ireland.

So all you have to do is finish this sentence: “Politics would be better if only Politicians would….”

Usual Slugger Awards rules apply. In other words, just try to complete the proposition and negatives (for example, screeds about what they shouldn’t be doing) will be removed on sight…

Otherwise, just make it short and to the point. And have a bit of fun with it..

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
