Keeping on talking

Thanks to everyone who read and commented here and on Facebook during the election campaign. We tried to do our bit to talk about policy issues rather than the leaders’ personalities, or their wives’ toes.

Now, under the new coalition Government, discussion and compromise on issues will, we hope, come right to the fore. People are talking – about Lords’ reform, about voting systems, about free schools and about spending cuts. The Labour party leadership election is getting under way, and again, we hope that it will be a contest of ideas rather than a coronation or a beauty contest.

So there’s still a lot to talk about, and here at TalkIssues we’re going to stay around to talk about it, keeping in touch with the policy issues and announcements under the new government. You can look here for regular updates on what’s happening, as well as some new features we’re planning for launch in the next few weeks. We hope you feel like you want to stay around.
